First Paper Ph 2113: Philosophy of Art Assignment: Write a 900-100 (3-page double-spaced) paper and send to me as a MSWord.docx file using this template for a filename: 2453LastName11.docx. A religious world (in the primitive or archaic sense intended here) is one in which the here-andnow of life in this world is tethered to hidden forces and beings of a world beyond. This is the realm of the dead, those who have departed. Since there is no death in the sense of utter extinction, it is an invisible realm, a world beyond this one, in which the deceased take up a new residence. There is migration and communication between two realms, that of the living and that of the dead, not simple extinction. The rise of philosophy, to the contrary, corresponds to the emergence of a secular world, as if the natural and social worlds and individuals, too, were centered in themselves or autarchic (self-sufficient, self-sustained). Comparable in some ways to ours today, it was a world in which death is final; there is only this world, the world of life; and freedom (emulating divinity) are to be sought and achieved in the here-and-now. The representation of the dead, for example, would be commemorative but not communicative, replacing his presence with a simulacrum reproducing the appearance of a reality no longer extant.

TENSION BETWEEN THE RELIGION AND THE SECULAR

Tension between the Religion and the Secular
With the advent of modern science, there has been increased tension between religion and
secular as peoples' lives are filled with non-religious elements (Hurd, 2017). Most people spend
most of their time working, studying, watching movies or TV, or playing with their cellphones
that they do not have time for religious activities. People are also focused on modern medicine,
which means they no longer believe in the healing power of God. This paper analyzes the tension
between the religious and the secular, as reflected in biblical iconoclasm and Plato and Aristotle.
Iconoclasm is destroying religious images and monuments. Biblical iconoclasm is
evident in the Ten Commandments, where Christians are not allowed to make any graven images
or worship any other objects rather than Yahweh, the true God (Exodus 20:3-5). This is
controversial to the description given by God to Moses on how to make the images that will be
on the Ark of the Covenant. This brings the question if making idol images is doing the ...
