'The Social Philosophy of Art According to Descartes and Mulla Sadra' is recently released by Jahad Daneshgahi Press.
As stated in the book, the study applies only the philosophical approaches and yet goes beyond the limits of pure philosophy.
There are different definitions of the philosophy of arts; the present text takes a glimpse on all those presuppositions.
'The Social Philosophy of Art According to Descartes and Mulla Sadra' is organized in three chapters including: ‘Art from Ontology to Epistemology’, ‘Social Philosophy from the Viewpoints of Descartes and Mulla Sadra’, and ‘Sadra’s Social Philosophy of Art’.
Each chapter covers different ideas on the philosophy of art that oscillate between western and Sadraist definitions of art, such as ‘Pre-Cartesian Philosophy of Art’, ‘Cartesian Philosophy of Art’, ‘Pre-Sadraist Philosophy of Art’, ‘Sadraist Philosophy of Art’, etc.
It also encompasses issues such as mental creation versus inspiration, self-genius versus divinity, iconoclasm, anti-traditionalism, philosophical foundations of Mulla Sarda, pre-modern art movements, modern movements from mannerism, Baroque, Classicism, Rococo, Neo-clacissism, Romanticism and… Hyper-realism.
'The Social Philosophy of Art according to Descartes and Mulla Sadra' is penned by Mohammad Aqasi and published in 1000 copies and 246 pages by Jahad Daneshgahi Press.
