Hermeneutics of Arts: A Phenomenological Perspective (in Arabic).

Auther : Tawfic Shomar , Hanan Alshaikh

The current era is witnessing fast and rapid progress in various sectors, especially in the area of communication and social media. Amid these advancements, arts, in general, and visual arts in all its forms, in particular, have become tools that influence the human consciousness. Hence, understanding the arts and their link to the lifeworld is vital, and Phenomenology might be the most appropriate philosophical discipline to help do so.
Phenomenology aims to deeply understand how human emotions, perceptions, consciousness, and all the other elements that affect human understanding are formed in relation with the lifeworld. The lifeworld forms the "objective" part of the ongoing "subject-object" relationship, without disregarding the "other" who receives, sends, or interacts with the artwork or image, i.e. not to disregard inter-subjectivity. In this paper, the writers aim to understand visual arts by exploring the relationship between "subject", "object", lifeworld and "inter-subjectivity." The writers pose an important question: how can we reassess our relationship to the world and objects around us? Perceiving the world cannot be done without our existence in it, for we cannot be separated from it nor does it exist independent of us. The arts, in this case, are our means to understand the world. Artistic perception is the act of integrating the brain, body, and emotions, which characterizes it as being unique. Moreover, the paper provides with possibilities of unveiling the visible and invisible.
