This striking title proposes a striking idea: To be fully human means to have an inclination toward art. Pointing the way to art as a primary means through which we enter into a relationship with the spiritual nature of reality, this anthology by many of the most prominent philosophers and artists of our time reconnects us to the fundamental truths which give value to our thoughts and actions, as well as to art.

From the Publisher:

The subject of this anthology is of the greatest importance, not only for the understanding of the art produced in traditional civilizations, but also for the understanding of the real nature of the human condition and knowledge of what it means to be human. To be truly human is to reflect the Divine Image here on earth. By virtue of being human, man creates and makes, and by remaining faithful to his primordial nature produces traditional art, in the vastest sense of the term. Such an art reflects here on earth the wisdom and beauty of the Divine Artisan, thus making possible the creation of the forms that lead to the world of the Spirit and the Formless. This understanding of art has been to a large extent forgotten in the modern world as a consequence of modern man’s forgetting who he is, why he is here on earth, and where he is going. This anthology is, therefore, not only an exposition of the significance of traditional art, but also the means for the remembrance of what it means to be truly human, to be the pontifical man who is the bridge between Heaven and earth and a channel of grace for the world around him. -Seyyed Hossein Nasr
