Art, faith, Amnesia addresses the connection among paintings and faith in modern tradition, without delay hard modern notions of paintings and faith as distinctive social phenomena and explaining how such Western phrases signify substitute or even antithetical modes of world-making.

In this new e-book, Professor Preziosi deals a critique of the most thrust of writing lately at the matters of artwork, faith, and their interconnections, outlining intimately a standpoint which redefines the fundamental phrases during which contemporary debates and discussions were articulated either within the scholarly and well known literature, and in inventive, political and non secular perform. Art, faith and Amnesia proposes an alternative choice to the 2 traditional traditions of writing at the topic that have been committed at the one hand to the ‘spiritual’ dimensions of artistry, and nonetheless to the (equally spurious) ‘aesthetic’ facets of faith.

The booklet interrogates the elemental assumptions fuelling many present controversies over illustration, idolatry, blasphemy, and political tradition. Drawing on debates from Plato’s suggestion to banish representational paintings from his excellent city-state to the Danish cartoons of Mohamed, Preziosi argues that contemporary debates have echoed a few very old controversies in political philosophy, theology, and paintings heritage over the matter of illustration and its capabilities in person and social life.
