^ Firstly, if you were to assess Abbasi's "critique" of Mulla Sadra on its own merits (without knowing the names "Hassan Abbasi" and "Abdollah Javadi Amoli," and just focusing on the argument itself), you would still see that it fails! Abbasi doesn't give a robust critique of philosophy. He doesn't say anything that would convince someone of his position unless they were already convinced of it. He just says some slogans and makes some claims. In fact I would be much better off concentrating on the speaker rather than what is being said: maybe Abbasi's service in the front line and his political analyses would have made me more inclined to believe his nonsense slogans about philosophy. LoL!
As for Islamic philosophy...
1) "Aristotle" isn't a swear word. To say that something derives from Greek philosophy is not to demean it. We cannot be guided to truth without reason, and Aristotle happened to be the first person to put rational principles in words. "Logic" is not something which is invented. It is thus not something which we should go against out of defiance of ancient Greeks!!!
2) If Aristotle's ideas are Greek, then all human beings are Greek (including you). http://courses.durhamtech.edu/perkins/aris.html
Again, all Aristotle did was put into words a truth which already existed. Unfortunately, he happened to live before Islam (and, thus, before Mulla Sadra, etc...) so all these lovely Muslims today can condemn philosophy as bed'at. LoL!
3) Related to the first two points: math existed. But why do these kids in American and European schools learn "algebra" (al jabr)? Because Muslim mathematicians were the first to use it, and so that word ended up being the universal word for it. But math existed before they did!! Math existed before the revelation of the Qur'an. So are we to dismiss the work of Muslim mathematicians (and all of the advances which were possible because of their work?). Similarly, Ibn Sina wrote more philosophical concepts than Aristotle, and Mulla Sadra wrote more than Ibn Sina. So what do you say about that? Why do you cheapen these personalities? Do you honestly know enough about these personalities to cheapen them as mindless taqlidis copying Greek ideas?
4) You talk of listening to a message based on merit but then you try to use Majlisi's name power to degrade Mulla Sadra. If you wanna play that game we can play it, but then you'd be going up against some very very powerful names. e.g. "Ruhollah Khomeini," "Morteza Motahhari," "Seyyed Mohammad Hossein Tabatabaei." Imam Khomeini followed Mulla Sadra's "asfar" in his life; this wasn't simply a matter of reading his books or even agreeing with his arguments, but implementing
his teachings. So what do you have to say to that? As someone who believes in velayat e faqih, and who believes that this individual MUST be obeyed due to his superior knowledge and other traits... when this individual holds Mulla Sadra in such a high position? It contradicts your own beliefs, for you to demean Mulla Sadra in this way.
5) We actually have narrations mentioning Aristotle. LoL! Imam Sadiq is narrated to have talked about him. Just search in googool: "Imam Sadiq + Aristotle" and I am sure you will get a ton of results.
In any case I am done arguing about this. At the end of the day, I haven't read any of Mulla Sadra's books. I don't know who he was or what he said. All I know is:
1) A lot of brilliant people are slandered, and anyone who just believes a slander without more investigation is an idiot.
2) "The Spirit of God" said some nice things about that Mulla Sadra fellow. And no offense to you, but I trust his word over yours. LoL!
