Visual Thought in Russian Religious Philosophy
This book writen by Clemena Antonova during her residency in IMéRA (2018-2019) and published in 2019 considers a movement within Russian religious philosophy known as full unity (vseedinstvo), with a focus on one of its main representatives, Pavel Florensky (1882-1937). It is shown that his philosophy, conceptualized in his theory of the icon, brings together the problem of the “religious turn” and the “pictorial turn” in modern culture, and also contributes to contemporary debates on religion and secularism.
Offering an important contribution from Russian religious philosophy to issues of contemporary
modernity, this book will be of interest to scholars of
religious philosophy, Russian studies, theology and the
arts, and the medieval icon.
