Alex rated it really liked it Oct 21, Kafkasfriend rated it really liked it Dec 13, Besanon rated it it was ok Oct 27, This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The universe was no longer flat. Though it is still unclear how “nothingness” can be a “murderous being”, what is beeancon is the effort of constraining history to accept and follow a priori categories of theological descent masquerading as “true” political thought.
That the philosophy of aesthetics is connected to religion intwrzisa surprise no one. Therefore, the history and promotion of making images, pictures of the world around us, is intimately connected to this freeing influence -the incarnation. Maybe it’s because I have my own book on iconoclasm floating unwritten in my head, but I thought this work was basically a massive vanity project, using years of history to unfurl a rather idosyncratic pet theory on modern art.

While Pseudo-Dionysus the source of Aquina’s aesthetics and the Abbot Sugger tolerated subjectivity in religious art and affirmed the affective and symbolic importance of art primarily in stained glass as a tool for meditation, the Orthodox patriarchs were concerned with checking subjectivity more than other traditions.

Alain rated it it was amazing Mar 03, Whilst the latter may be quite true, a culturalist critique of the historical and economic context of Russia is but exhausted by such cotrrelations.

Spicuiri din recenzia finala care se gaseste pe blogul meu The development of theology in connection to the images is nailed down by Besancon in copious documents and interzsia exacting attention to detail. Trivia About The Forbidden Ima Dec 29, Craig rated it it was amazing. Religious subjects are after all the most magnificently funded and the most popular for they draw even the most insensitive materialist. Finally, though it never claims to be anything but an ‘intellectual’ history of iconoclasm, it seems that reducing iconoclasm which is very rarely an intellectual phenomenon, but more often a physical, even instinctual one to its philosophical underpinnings and ignoring its actual concrete manifestations, is not the best way to do justice to the concept.

All this golden age of popularity for art, began to change even at the end of the renaissance, when the new philosophers began to be insecure about the ability of man to know and thus paint the universe. Sticking to ornamental art, like Islam and Judaism do is absolutely rational, particularly in their religious art. Very lopsided, too, betraying his own philosophical besqncon, and lacked good editing at times.
View all 7 comments. One of the most cogently written and utterly fascinating studies of iconodulia and iconoclasm alike. Jane Marie Todd Translator. The Communist ideal knitted together the slavophilic tendencies of Puskin, Gogol and Dostoievski with the raw atheism and materialism of Alexander Herzen, Plehanov and Lenin. In his effort to be fair, Besancon often changes points of view to ’empathize’ with the theologian or philosopher in besanfon, which often confused me to no end.

Ni quelques aspects du communisme. One, return to besamcon orthodoxy and believe that man can ‘incarnate’ the world.
