عنوان مقاله [English]
The immortality of the rational soul is one of the most important issues of Ibn Sina’s philosophy and anthropology. He poses many arguments in proving this subject. Ibn Sina proves the immortality of rational soul by not having relation or position of the intelligible concepts, indefinite power of the rational soul in his actions as well as its needlessness to sensible faculties in some of its perceptions. In spite of the fact, Ibn Sina denies the immortality of imagination faculty and, therefore, in his view, this faculty is material. In this essay, the author, analyzing these proofs, is going to prove that they also prove the immortality of imaginary faculty for lack of any relation or position in the case of imaginary concepts, its indefinite power of imagination in actions and its needlessness to sensible faculties in some perceptions.
