Abstract:   (585 Views)
It is an important problem in building modern Islamic civilization to set priorities in major policies and measures which should be adopted for creating and developing this civilization, and there are different views on how to respond to such a problem. The value-based nature of modern Islamic civilization may add a further complication; since the one who gives priority to economics or security in a given time or all the time, does so in ethical terms; but can ethics determine its priority at this level? If yes, according to which criterion can ethics do so? Relying on the foundations of Islamic philosophy and by a descriptive-analytic method, this article attempts to explain how it is possible to classify major plans and actions according to ethics, to analyze a subsistence-criterion for the moral classification of major policies, and finally to develop four proof-criteria for identifying the primacy of certain major policies on the basis of moral standards.  
Keywords: Classification, order of moral values, contingency, substance-criterion for value, proof-criterion for value.
