The relationship between Beauty and Metaphysics in Farabi
Mehdi Bahrami
Abstract:   (3824 Views)
The issue of metaphysics is one of the important problems in philosophy and especially in Islamic philosophy. Practically, all of muslim philosophers pay more attention to this aspect of philosophy which is also very famous in the Middle East and ancient philosophy. The metaphysics is a basis for many theories in Islamic philosophy because of Good’s pivotal place in this philosophy. In fact, God, i.e epistemology of God, is an important subject in Islamic philosophy and the study of God and its issues have been always regarded as a part of metaphysics in Islamic philosophy. Farabi is one of Muslim philosophers who is known as the Second Teacher. He formulated his Islamic philosophy on the basis of Aristotle’s philosophy. In this paper, I want to study metaphysical theory of Farabi and his theory of beauty and describe the relationship between them by method of philosophical analysis. Whereas Farabi expresses intellectual beauty as something that refers to intelligible world, it seems that there are deep linking between beauty and metaphysics. In addition, when God as one part of metaphysics is regarded as the beautiful existence in his theory of beauty, how can we separate metaphysics and beauty in philosophy of Farabi?
Keywords: Farabi, metaphysics, beauty, perfection
