Allameh Tabatabaei in his theory about the "conventional perceptions" (edrakat-e etebari), states that any being alive looks for a purpose (telos) in its acts. However, this purpose is merely conventionality (etebari), and has no place unless in the imagination. Therefore, the nothingness is somehow a conventional thing too, which does not exist in the external and real world. Despite there is a little correspondence between Allameh Tabatabaei and Schleiermacher's standpoints on the conventional perceptions, they have common views about the interpretation of the sacred writs and holy texts. Schleiermacher has been well known as the father of hermeneutics. He, according to the neo-orthodoxy, interprets the metaphysical subjects and points in the holy script not as allegory but metaphor, and hence, supposes the evil equal to the nothingness. This paper wants to show that although there is little agreement between Schleiermacher's views about the nothingness with what Allameh considers as "conventionality"; but deep different, which would be discussed.
