Philosophical natural sciences has had influence on philosopher’s theories. One of these issues is the quality of soul origination in the body. Avicenna, with the theory of the spiritual origination of the soul along with the body, was able to overcome some of the problems of the Aristotelian model in a step forward.
But the question is, how did this famous philosopher and medical doctor express this matter in his philosophical natural sciences and what natural basis did he use? Another question is, if Avicenna’s explanation of soul origination in the nature of the body is consistence with his explanation of the soul origination in the body in his mind philosophy? In order to answer this question, the quality of life, nutrition and growth from the beginning of the formation of the sperm in the embryo is investigated in the Avicenna’s philosophical natural sciences. He said that the sperm becomes ready to receive the life-giving heavenly potency by using heavenly heat, and the soul potencies take responsible of planning, maintaining and growing the embryo's body through the vapor spirit. Then, after the formation of the heart in the embryo, the soul belongs to the heart and will take over the leadership of the whole body. In the second step, this article presents a solution to compatible these two explanations by using a different interpretation of Avicenna's expressions.
