Symbolic issues. The basic shapes [Cuestiones simbólicas. Las formas básicas]
For about two decades, Professor Raimon Arola has endeavored to convey in their classes the importance of symbolic thought, both artistic creation and other cultural and existential domains. This book is a compendium of them and the enriching dialogue with students. In it, there is interesting proposals to develop a living and current symbolic thought. In an era in which the symbolism is fashionable for its exoticism, the author places his study in the academic world, to achieve rigor sometimes nonexistent outside it, but without losing the very creative essence of symbolism. For Arola, symbols are like a secret thread running through and meets the different traditions, so they appear as the unavoidable basis for any intercultural dialogue. The book, which is structured from basic geometric shapes, it is presented as a written and visual speech, with more than 200 pictures that follow the text. Most of the photographs are from Manel Armengol, but also classic images were selected and included in the book, with the intention of rebuild this universal language.
