Artist's Description

Greek philosophy
Contemplation was an important part of the philosophy of Plato; Plato thought that through contemplation the soul may ascend to knowledge of the Form of the Good or other divine Forms. Plotinus as a (neo)Platonic philosopher also expressed contemplation as the most critical of components for one to reach henosis. To Plotinus the highest contemplation was to experience the vision of God, the Monad or the One. Plotinus describes this experience in his works the Enneads. According to his student Porphyry, Plotinus stated that he had this experience of God four times. Plotinus wrote about his experience in Enneads 6.9.xx….

Contemplation and meditation
Nature contemplation
In Christianity, contemplation refers to a content-free mind directed towards the awareness of God as a living reality. This corresponds, in some ways, to what in Eastern religion is called samadhi.78

Contemplation as a practice is finding greater resonance in the West both in business – for example in Peter Senge’s book The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization9 – and in universities in fields as diverse as architecture, physics, and the liberal arts.

In Catholic Christianity, contemplation is given importance. The Catholic Church’s “model theologian,” St. Thomas Aquinas wrote: “It is requisite for the good of the human community that there should be persons who devote themselves to the life of contemplation.” One of his disciples, Josef Pieper commented: “For it is contemplation which preserves in the midst of human society the truth which is at one and the same time useless and the yardstick of every possible use; so it is also contemplation which keeps the true end in sight, gives meaning to every practical act of life.”
