Abstract: Moral constructivism is a metaethical view of the nature of truth and moral truths and characteristics. From the constructivist point of view, morality is subjective and dependent on human beliefs. In the view of constructivists, moral truths exist, but the existence of these truths arises from human existence and depends on human attitudes and conventions. In their view, moral values are not the product of discovery but the product of creation. By Analysis of Mulla Sadra's intellectual foundations, from his philosophy, the theory of constructivist ethics can be deduced. In Mulla Sadra's view, the human soul is moving towards evolution based on the substantial motion Due to the physical coming-into-being in the world, and in the hereafter, this motion is due to the movement of ardent desire. The human soul is the creator of forms, and at every moment it is placed in a rank of the existential world, and in proportion to that rank, moral possessions are issued from it in gradation. The present article aims to provide an ethical constructivist reading of Mulla Sadra's philosophy by interpreting the important foundations of Mulla Sadra's philosophy.
