Analysis and study of Mirza Mahdi Isfahani's intellectual foundations on the issue of bodily resurrection will pave the way for understanding his theory, considering the narrated evidences. Isfahani's abundant interest in the appearance of texts has led to a view similar to the theory of Islamic theologians. But the foundation of Isfahani thought is based on issues such as the creation of human beings in the world of pre-existence, determining the nature of human beings, entering the world and mixing natures and then leaving the world and establishing the resurrection based on the worldly body. Sometimes Isfahani considers the source of understanding of these matters as divine grace and mercy, and sometimes justice and fairness. Therefore, two issues are very important and fundamental in his intellectual system: 1. Special attention to texts without semantic interpretation; 2. Need to apply analysis and explanations on resurrection to verses and narrations. Isfahani methodologically has a pluralistic approach and sometimes a unitary approach to the issue of physical resurrection. In other words, he seeks to reconcile methodically his views with verses and narrations, and has advanced this basis to the point that he has attributed his transcripts to the lights of the Ahl al-Bayt (AS) (Household of the Prophet).
