Sainte Russie by Alain Besançon

The mere conception of God, said Islam and Judaism, trapped us into a partial lopsided view of God. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Hardcoverpages. Apr 02, Interzisz DeVille, Ph.

Published May 7th by University of Chicago Press first published No trivia or quizzes yet. One of the most cogently written and utterly fascinating studies of iconodulia and iconoclasm alike. Ni quelques aspects du communisme. And to wit, says Besancon, within every major religion and philosophical school this is the ONLY option that makes sense.

Though it is still unclear how “nothingness” can be a “murderous being”, what is symptomatic is the effort of constraining history to accept and follow a priori categories of theological descent masquerading as “true” political thought. Imaginfa rated it liked it Feb 22, Robert rated it really liked it Mar 11, Published May by De Fallois first published The tendency then as now, says Besancon was to shy away from reproducing images.


Philosophers and theologians have long engaged in intense debate and introspection over the representation of the deity, its possibilities and its proscriptions. Ortodoxia nu imterzisa un simplu cult, este o stare de fapt, este un A Fi pe care norodul nu-l poate concepe altfel.

Alina Horbachova rated it really liked it Aug 21, Maybe it’s ihterzisa 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.

Alain Besançon – Monoskop

Two, water down the theology, philosophy and standards so that you can fit pretty much anything into your art. One, return to artistic orthodoxy and believe that man can ‘incarnate’ the world.

All this golden age of popularity for art, began to change besancom 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. Refresh and try again. No trivia or quizzes yet.

That the philosophy of aesthetics is connected to religion should surprise no one. C’est souvent faux, parfois vrai.

Sainte Russie

Return to Book Page. Therefore, the history and promotion of making images, pictures of the world around us, is intimately connected to this freeing influence -the incarnation.

Tristana rated it it was amazing Dec 18, The communist idea, Besancon affirms, is “nothingness” and thus cannot reach materialization by itself, requiring a parasitical relation bexancon the country’s past he uses the theological word “incarnation” to describe this failure. Finally, though it never claims to be anything but an ‘intellectual’ history of iconoclasm, it seems alaim 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.

Plotinus, Plato and Aristotle disagreed in significant ways. View all 7 comments.
