عنوان مقاله [English]
There is no controversy in the authority of intellectual conduct in the periods of the infallible imams as confirmed by them. However, there is no doubt in authority of intellectual conduct in the periods of the infallible imams as not rejected by them as well. Although, there are a number of scholars who believe that non-rejection does not suffice and the necessity of confirmation by the imams is the condition of authority, there is a question on the authority and the reason behind it regarding the intellectual conduct unavailable in the period of the imams which has been formed after them. This paper is to discuss the proposed latter issue. According to the author, the former rule is an authority in general intellectual conducts in the area of non-servitude (signatory) rules, while non-authority entails a valid reason. Various reasons have been proposed in this paper in favor of this viewpoint which are valid and trustworthy according to the author. Thus, the problems raised about them are resolved scientifically. However, there are some criticisms leveled against some proposed indications that the author has sated them and believes them to be invalid and inauthentic.
