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

145 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,287 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.--
Man and the state by Jacques Maritain( Book )

118 editions published between 1864 and 2021 in 9 languages and held by 2,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The lectures that were the basis for Man and the State were delivered at the University of Chicago at a time when Maritain was still in the first enthusiasm of his participation in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He devotes particular attention to the concept of rights, since, historically, rights theories were fashioned to supplant the natural law theory to which Maritain as a Thomist gives his allegiance. Maritain provides an ingenious and profound theory as to how natural law and natural rights can be complementary. For this reason alone it remains a fundamental contribution to political philosophy, but it is filled with other gems as well. Was Maritain too optimistic in his appraisal of modernity? Or have we unjustly lost the optimism that was his? Man and the State is an invitation to rethink the way we pose the basic questions of political philosophy"

Distinguish to unite : or, The degrees of knowledge by Jacques Maritain( Book )

25 editions published between 1937 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maritain argues that there are different 'kinds' and 'orders' of knowledge and, within them, different 'degrees' determined by the nature of the thing to be known and the 'degree of abstraction' involved. The book is divided into two parts: Part one discusses the degrees of knowledge for science and philosophy - or 'rational knowledge,' and part two discusses the degrees of knowledge for religious faith and mysticism - or 'super-rational knowledge.'

Art and poetry by Jacques Maritain( Book )

57 editions published between 1933 and 2022 in 5 languages and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally titled<i> Frontières de la Poésie</i> (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, <i>Art and Scholasticism</i> , 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.<br />
