In late September 2019, the IV All-Russian scientific and practical conference with international participation “Readings named after Shigabutdin Marjani” was held in Moscow, panel “Islamic Philosophy and Culture” was organised within its framework. A number of outstanding scientists took part in this event, their works can be found in this section of our Journal. The works presented to the attention of the readers are divided into two categories, reflecting the main sections of the corresponding panel of the above mentioned conference: philosophy and the Art of Islam. These two thematic sections are combined into one section for a reason. Besides the well-known interosculation of philosophy and art, or rather, the possibility of correlation between them at a worldview level. The relationship between philosophy and art can be represented in the form of Ibn Rushd famous metaphor about the step sisters, which he uses to explain the connection between philosophy and religion: as you know, they have one goal but different means. On the example of the works presented in this section, it can be seen as well as possible. M.L. Reisner, Institute of Asian and African studies of Lomonosov Moscow State University, presented the article “Visual images of beauty of the word in the Persian poetry of XVI - the beginning of XVIII century: the Indian style and painting by word”, where she interprets the problem of changing the stylistic paradigm in Persian poetry of the 16th-17th centuries, analyzing how this process was reflected in the author’s self-consciousness of poets of that era. Analysis of the aesthetic criteria of the considered period is impossible without touching on a number of hermeneutic procedures and a certain “philosophy” of art. These principles are discussed in the next article of this issue: “The Study of the Principles of Philosophy of Islamic Art” by Hasti Safawi, researcher of University of Exeter. The article discusses an unconventional approach to the study of Islamic art for Western academic science, taking into account primarily Islamic philosophy and mysticism as a key component of the intellectual environment in which Islamic art was created. The logical progression of this was the article by a researcher of the IPh RAS N.V. Efremova “The Islamization of Aristotelism in the Metaphysics of Ibn Sina”, where she specifieses the most important philosophical achievements of one of the key representatives of Islamic philosophy Ibn Sina. The section ends with an equally interesting and philosophically significant article by Professor of RUDN University, M.M. Al-Janabi, “The theological and political idea of modern Salafism by Anwar al-Dzhundi” which not only formally, but logically concludes this section, actualising the issue of Islamic identity as the whole.
