One of the most important philosophical, theological and mystical issues which has an effective training function, especially in monotheistic training, is the effect of non-cognitive factors such as will, spiritual dispositions, behavioral patterns, desires, affections, and intentions on the process of man's perceptions including his anthropological, theological, cosmological attitudes, and his understanding of the meaning of life and the pure life, etc. The issue is regarded as a bridge between epistemology and ethics. The aim of present paper is to review the claim more carefully and find out Mawlawi's view in this regard. The most important point of the paper is that Mawlawi also believed in the effect of non-ideological realms on the realm of ideas and beliefs. Therefore, the most important instances of non-cognitive factors that cause the transparency or opacity of human cognition are introduced and the importance of non-cognitive factors in man's cognitive foundations is discussed, having understood Mawlawi's views in this regard.
