Mirza Mehdy Isfahani in the area of Mashhad was the founder of a school that later became known as the School of Tafkik (Separation). Mohammad Reza Hakimi coined the title ‘Tafkik’ to indicate this intellectual school. For him, this school is a worldview that distinguishes human knowledge such as philosophy and its associated concepts from pure knowledge which flow from Quran and Prophet’s tradition. Thus the proponents of this movement are strongly against using reason in its philosophical meaning to explain and defend the doctrines of religion.
In this paper, we will consider whether religion understanding without any (philosophical or non-philosophical) presuppositions is possible. Then using findings of Hermeneutics we will show that any understanding, including religion understanding, always begins with some presuppositions, in fact there is no escape from our pre-knowledge. These presuppositions are modified through the dialogue with the text.
Then we will consider whether one can use human intellectual experiences of disciplines such as philosophy, which have a common border with religion, to get a better understanding of religion statements.
