Creative intuition in art and poetry by Jacques Maritain( Book )

171 editions published between 1953 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume Jacques Maritain proposes to make clear both the distinction and the indissoluble relationship between art and poetry. He insists on the part played by the intellect both in art and in poetry, and especially on the fact that poetry has its source in the intuitive activity of the intellect. In the process of illuminating his argument, Maritain discusses the poetry of Eliot and Thomas, the painting of Rouault and Picasso, the music of Bach and Mozart, the philosophy of Plato, Aristotle, and St. Thomas Aquinas.--
On the use of philosophy; three essays by Jacques Maritain( Book )

33 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 2,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of three beautifully written essays, the distinguished philosopher Jacques Maritain presents his reflections on the role of philosophy in the life of man as a social being. In his concern for the social relevance of philosophy, Professor Maritain writes of the ways in which philosophy helps one to live. His essays are a dear and persuasive statement of why the world needs philosophers, and of how the pursuit of truth and intellectual justice requires fellowship among men of different faiths. Two of the essays, “Truth and Human Fellowship” and “The Philosopher in Society,” were given as lectures at the Graduate School of Princeton University. The third, “God and Science,” is a new statement from Professor Maritain on the relation of modern science to man’s knowledge of God.Originally published in 1961.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Art and poetry by Jacques Maritain( Book )

47 editions published between 1933 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally titled Frontières de la Poésie (1935), this book by Jacques Maritain, whose philosophical writings read as interestingly as a novel, will be welcomed by all who are seeking a better understanding of the art of our time. The book delves into Maritain's thoughts on the nature and subjectivity of art and poetry. As a philosopher, Maritain attempts to define the two concepts, describing art and poetry as virtues, and as being primarily concerned with beauty. Rather than focus on aesthetic theory, Maritain examines the concepts at a more tangible level, including a discussion of how they are made. The principles established with such precision and brilliance in his earlier work, Art and Scholasticism, which has had such a deep influence on contemporary artists, are successfully put to the test in illuminating the creative works of such diverse artists as Georges Rouault, Marc Chagall, Gino Sevirini, and Arthur Lourie
