For a Philosophy of Aniconism in the Islam
By Almir Ibric
In this first English text about (Islamic) philosophy and the topic of aniconism in Islam, interested readers will be informed about the existence, the sense as well as the qualitative but not quantitative effect of the aniconism on the so-called art of the Islam. In Islam, aniconism is regarded as a law of the revelation and it serves the searching for the good, for order, harmony and aesthetics of life, for God, the almighty creator of existence. Aniconism is much more than a ban of pictures! Is there also a connection between atomism, tattoous ruh, ijhaz, materialism and jahiliyya?
