In Fakhr al-din Iraqi`s epistemological system, the pantheistic viewpoint of the creation of the universe is appeared in the form of adoration of the sensible beauties and as the Good`s manifestations. By using descriptive-analytic method, the present paper tries to make an epistemological explanation to the perception of Beauty in the thoughts of Iraqi; so it first determines the rule of Beauty and then the phases and purpose of perceiving it in his thought. The research shows that according to Iraqi, the perception of the sensible beauty leads to recognizing of the Good in His manifestations. Divine providence causes man perceives the sensible beauties as the Good`s manifestations and the cognition ofHim begins; the context is provided for the Perfect Man and the spiritual journey (suluk), the attraction by God and the union are realized. According to Iraqi, the epistemological cognitive phases of the Good`s manifestations- which are equal to the phases of loving Him- and the existential transubstantiation are simultaneous.
