The differences between religions are reflected very clearly in the different forms of sacred art: compared with Gothic art, above all in its 'flamboyant' style, Islamic art is contemplative rather than volitive: it is 'intellectual' and not 'dramatic', and it opposes the cold beauty of geometrical design to the mystical heroism of cathedrals. Islam is the perspective of 'omnipresence' ('God is everywhere'), which coincides with that of 'simultaneity' ('Truth has always been'); it aims at avoiding any 'particularization' or 'condensation', any 'unique fact' in time and space, although as a religion it necessarily includes an aspect of 'unique fact', without which it would be ineffective or even absurd. In other words Islam aims at what is 'everywhere center', and this is why, symbolically speaking, it replaces the cross with the cube or the woven fabric: it 'decentralizes' and 'universalizes' to the greatest possible extent, in the realm of art as in that of doctrine; it is opposed to any individualist mode and hence to any 'personalist' mysticism. To express ourselves in geometrical terms, we could say that a point which seeks to be unique, and which thus becomes an absolute center, appears to Islam-in art as in theology-as a usurpation of the divine absoluteness and therefore as an 'association' (shirk); there is only one single center, God, whence the prohibition against 'centralizing' images, especially statues; even the Prophet, the human center of the tradition, has no right to a 'Christic uniqueness' and is 'decentralized' by the series of other Prophets; the same is true of Islam-or the Koran-which is similarly integrated in a universal 'fabric' and a cosmic 'rhythm', having been preceded by other religions-or other 'Books'-which it merely restores. The Kaaba, center of the Muslim world, becomes space as soon as one is inside the building: the ritual direction of prayer is then projected toward the four cardinal points. If Christianity is like a central fire, Islam on the contrary resembles a blanket of snow, at once unifying and leveling and having its center everywhere.

Professor Smith has kindly submitted his book to me before publication. After reading it thoroughly and with intense interest I am glad to comply with his request to give him my impression. The work is a broadly conceived attempt to portray man's fear-induced animistic and mythic ideas with all their far-flung transformations and interrelations. It relates the impact of these phantasmagorias on human destiny and the causal relationships by which they have become crystallized into organized religion. This is a biologist speaking, whose scientific training has disciplined him in a grim objectivity rarely found in the pure historian. This objectivity has not, however, hindered him from emphasizing the boundless suffering which, in its end results, this mythic thought has brought upon man. Professor Smith envisages as a redeeming force, training in objective observation of all that is available for immediate perception and in the interpretation of facts without preconceived ideas. In his view, only if every individual strives for truth can humanity attain a happier future; the atavisms in each of us that stand in the way of a friendlier destiny can only thus be rendered ineffective. His historical picture closes with the end of the nineteenth century, and with good reason. By that time it seemed that the influence of these mythic, authoritatively anchored forces which can be denoted as religious, had been reduced to a tolerable level in spite of all the persisting inertia and hypocrisy. Even then, a new branch of mythic thought had already grown strong, one not religious in nature but no less perilous to mankind - exaggerated nationalism. Half a century has shown that this new adversary is so strong that it places in question man's very survival. It is too early for the present-day historian to write about this problem, but it is to be hoped that one will survive who can undertake the task at a later date.
