Abstract: It became a tradition in modern philosophy to begin the exposition of any philosophical system with a thinker’s stand on epistemological issues. In my paper I attempt at a comprehensive reconstruction of ‘Abdu’l‐Bahá’s epistemological views that are scattered throughout many of His Writings and utterances. I focus on the distinction that is made in ‘Abdu’l‐Bahá’s Writings between objective vs. subjective and human vs. divine cognition. In conclusion, parallels are made between ‘Abdu’l‐Bahá’s epistemological views and the practical need for inter‐religious dialogue and cooperation. [Abstract taken from conference program.]
