Alain Besançon – Monoskop

Videos About This Book. Lists with This Book. Trying to connect the history of Russia and its image with its core of orthodox beliefs, Besancon falls into a sort of “metaphysical determinism”. Ian rated it liked it May 27, Vderevlean rated it really liked it May 30, This inability to grasp the whole of reality, the whole of God, meant that many thinkers, emperors and artists preferred to simply give up trying to make images rather than to attempt the imperfect.

Still, even in Christianity how touse images has always been a contested question, leading to various artistic periods and traditions. 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.

The mere conception of reality trapped us into subjectivity. In his effort to be fair, Besancon often changes points of view to ’empathize’ with the theologian or philosopher in question, which often confused me to no end.

Diana Mistreanu rated it it was amazing Nov 01, Sara rated it it was amazing Apr 21, 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.

In other words, he tinkers a little with the definition of iconoclasm to suit his own ends.

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.
