Description
The book deals with encounters of aesthetic motifs in Jewish art, especially in combinations of text and sound, literature and music. Concurrently, the discussion revolves around the concepts of beauty and creativity in Jewish philosophy and on the basic principles of literature that religious artists embrace. The aesthetic analysis deals with Jewish philosophers such as Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook, Rabbi David Cohen ("the Nazir"), Rabbi Joseph Dov Soloveitchik and Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein. The discussion also contemplates creators such as Nahum Arieli and Miron Izakson. The examination of the aesthetic motifs in the Jewish world makes an important contribution to the understanding of aesthetic thought in Jewish sources.
