The Study on the Aesthetic of Chinese Calligraphy under the Horizon of Information Philosophy†
AbstractWhat is the essence of Chinese Calligraphy beauty? It is the most important and difficult question in the history of Chinese Calligraphy art. The explorations that ancient Chinese artists had made on this question can be classified into three main schools: the first school emphasizes the objective manifestation form, which means that calligraphy beauty is natural and in its form; the second school emphasizes the subjective intention, which means that calligraphy beauty is emotion; the third school emphasizes the combination of subjectivity and objectivity. In my opinion, it is necessary to combine the subjectivity and objectivity when we understand the essence of calligraphy beauty. To understand it, however, we cannot just only depend on Chinese philosophical methodology and traditional western philosophy. But the information philosophy in contemporary China, which is built on the basis of criticizing such traditional dualism, can afford an explicit and systematic explanation to the essence of Chinese Calligraphy, and no matter form, image, meaning and mind can be dialectically unified on the basis of information mediums.
