Author s : Ciutescu, Sergiu-Alexandru Abstract: The views on mimesis supported both by Plato and Aristotle are two different ways of understanding representational art. If Plato sees representational art more as a world-reflecting device, similar to a deformed and deforming mirror, Aristotle understands it as a way of creating a world by reproducing the functioning mechanism of reality, by understanding the universals and by expressing them in works of art.
Both theories see work of art as representation, while the Islamic paradigm of art, even if not explicitly theorized, lets us conclude that works of art should be referential by resemblance rather than representational. This fact encourages the development of an metaphor aristotle viziune despre lume aesthetics that requires a religiously informed eye to be proper understood.
While the theories of Plato and Aristotle are both rooted in philosophical thought, the Islamic view over art is rooted in religious thought and, as we argue in the present study, this is the reason for which the latter falls into none of the two types of understanding the art as world-reflecting or world-creating to which western thought is tributary.
