Iqbal`s theory of knowledge


Rifat Aman

Iqbal’s philosophy of knowledge has a special significance for his whole philosophical system. Too much stress has usually been placed on other aspects of his thought, overlooking that all these have their footing in it. His famous theory of “ego” is base on the feelings of “I am ness” and his philosophy of religion is embedded in a type of consciousness. Broadly speaking, a theory which distrusts the capacity of reason to give us knowledge of reality and relies on some other source for it is called intuitionism. It is chiefly associated with the names of Henry Bergson and Iqbal Bergson holds that our intellect or reason which works with its concepts is not fitted to reveal reality, as it is in itself.
