Central to Bahá’í philosophy and theology is the doctrine of revelation. A thesis of Progressive Revelation offers a unique solution to the fundamental antinomies of philosophical discourse in general, Accordingly, Bahá’í theology of revelation should not be understood as an isolated or residual theological, philosophical, or sociological principle. The article tries to demonstrate the general and foundational significance of the concept revelation by applying it to the central question of modern philosophy, i.e., Kantian antinomies of reason.
