Abstract: 

Sadr al Motaallehin Shirazi’s explanations of meaning in different books seem to indicate his hesitation in choosing a version of referential theory of meaning or one of ideational theory. Nonetheless, on closer examination of his assertions, based on his ontological and epistemological doctrines, a coherent theory that stands betwixt these two thereby reconciling his apparently clashing remarks in a general framework of explanation of different kinds of perception can be formulated based on his ontological and epistemological doctrines. Semantically speaking, there are two types of words: meaningful words that have both reference and sense and words that are meaningful only in virtue of having reference.
