عنوان مقاله [English]
Aesthetics as the essence of art has always drawn the attention of intellectuals, critics, and philosophers. It has also been approached directly or implicitly by traditionalists. Traditionalism is a twentieth-century western school founded by Guenon, Coomaraswamy, Schuon and practiced by Burchardt and Seyyed Hossein Nasr in Iran. The present study draws upon a cognitive approach to discuss some philosophical views and then examines the aesthetics-associated ideas of these five traditionalists. We attempt to criticize such views based on this assumption that the traditionalists’ views on aesthetics are ambiguous and contradictory and irrational and include expressions devoid of truth or reality.
Ancient school philosophers’ definition of aesthetics is mainly substantive and points to tangible matters. Comparatively speaking, the definition of traditionalists is merely vague, emotional, and contradictory. Such conceptualization has been extended to architecture and other arts. In many cases, this definition has even gone too far and caused ambiguity However, the fact that many traditionalists have taken aesthetics for the truth itself is undeniable.
