  1. It is unlikely, because in religion, not only the aesthetic side and teaching are of great importance, but also religious rituals, traditions, community, religious experience, etc. All this is not inherent in either “pure” philosophy or” pure ” art.

    If philosophy and art try to replace religion, they will probably end up simply becoming a religion themselves (or perhaps it would be more accurate to say “acquire pronounced features of religion”), as can be clearly seen in the example of Soviet Marxism.

  2. Absolutely not! And that's why. These forms are deeply symphonic…and cannot exist separately. Religion+Philosophy+Science! More precisely, scientific search. And in such a bundle, they are the best shape. Unauthorized breaking of the unbreakable itself.. Always characterized by questions that generate the same questions! So it shouldn't be any other way, and it can't be. After all, Philosophy without religion is groundless, and science is rather questionable all the time! Something like that.

  3. Can pizza and hamburger ever completely replace borscht and bread?

    And in general-why do you need to replace borscht with something? Yes, and for everyone?! Karl!

    If you don't want to eat borscht, don't eat it.

    While you are young-eat not necessarily healthy food, but also delicious-drink coffee and eat chocolate! (greetings to Zhvanetsky)

  4. Philosophy and art are in a very weak state and are not able to effectively perform even their direct duties.

    Religion contains both philosophy and art.

  5. Of course! There are a huge number of people for whom either philosophy or art has replaced religious concepts. A lot of people, especially professionals, live by synthesizing all three of these phenomena.

    On the other hand, a religious person, if he is not a fanatic or a reader, is well aware of the spiritual need to realize himself and God through art and thought.

    In addition, philosophy, art, and religion are constantly intertwined and complement each other in human practice. What is theology but a philosophy of higher subjects? Or is it church art soaked through with philosophy?

  6. This is a free choice of people. There have already been attempts. In the USSR, for example, the philosophy of Marx – Lenin was drummed into everyone. Religion was in the pen. As soon as they stopped hammering, the number of supporters of this “only true teaching” plummeted. So the process is undulating, there is no final decision and can not be

  7. What do you mean – replace? There will be no philosophy, no art, but a religion? and there will be a person. who will read the Word day and night, and keep the commandments, and put to death the flesh… That is, religion is death. Can art and philosophy make up for this? Of course not.

  8. There are 2 worlds: material and spiritual. A person has 2 ways of cognition in his arsenal: rational and irrational. If you draw a diagram, you will get 4 intersection areas:
    1. Science (material/rational);
    2. Philosophy (non-material/rational);
    3. Art (material/irrational);
    4. Religion (non-material/irrational).
    Interchangeability is not provided. If you are still faced with it, then most likely you are dealing with esotericism or occultism, which are not WAYS of KNOWING, but WAYS of CHANGING the world around you. This means that their ultimate goal is completely different.

  9. Neither art nor philosophy can replace religion. A religion that will modernize its views, or rather compare them with the scientific picture of the world, will not cease to be necessary.

  10. They can't. The basis of any religion is the idea of the existence of God (or gods) and the creation of the universe by Him (further nuances).

    Philosophy and art can both reflect this, and have been successfully reflecting it for a long time. But that's all. This idea itself is not at their core.

    Can art and religion exist completely separately from each other and not overlap? In theory-easily. For example, icons, temple architecture, and church singing are not the most important things in Christianity. For many decades after Christ's death on the Cross and Resurrection, there were no special churches (often there were not even accessible rooms at all), sacred images (wall paintings and mosaics) appeared much later. Well, and so on.

    What is the interest of art in religion? – a large selection of interesting stories, images and experiences, high proximity to the viewer.

    What is the interest of religion in art? – raising the general culture of both believers and those who come to the faith, developing human talents laid down from above.

  11. philosophy tries to create a continuous chain of inferences, which is required from the “scientific” nature of philosophy as a discipline. The philosopher assumes that the world is knowable, even if we are talking about agnosticism. Because at least in order to declare agnosticism, a certain portion of consistent theses and proofs is needed. In short, philosophy is continuity. Art is much freer in its expression. He doesn't need proof. In its extreme forms, it is a pure utterance, a text as such. But just like philosophy, art is “material” in its manifestation. The text must be developed to be read. Religion is a reference to the “indescribable”, despite the fact that religion uses the attributes of philosophical discourse and the tools of art – in its deepest essence, religion overturns everything “material”, turning, ultimately, to the absolutely spiritual, which is indescribable and the transition to which is possible only by overturning everything described, that is, by an act of absolute sacrifice. Religion is a genuine action, unlike philosophical speculation and art modeling. A true action is a true and unique and all-encompassing movement that cannot be prepared, implemented consistently, but which can only be a “quantum leap” – a moment of sudden and indescribable interruption of the old track and jump to a New One (using an analogy from the quantum world).
