    The Isfahan School (Persian: مكتب اصفهان ‎) is a well known discipline in Islamic philosophy and is usually called a Renaissance in Islamic Philosophy. It was found by many famous Persian philosophers, most notably Mir Damad, Sheykh Baha''i and Mir Fendereski.

    During the Safavid Dynasty in Iran, and because of the particular attention of Shah Abbas to intellectual tradition in Islam, Isfahan became the most famous academic city and intellectual center of Iran in that time, along with other cities like Rey and Shiraz. In this time, many new and innovative disciplines arose out in Islamic Philosophy. The most notable figures of this era are Mir Damad and his student, the most famous Muslim philosopher for several centuries. Mulla Sadra.
