In this first english book about (islamic) philosophy and
the topic of aniconism in islam the 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?
