Онтологический аргумент Малевича: Бог как совершенство, или вечный покой

Артикульт. 2015. № 3. С. 18-28.

Revolutionary in art, Malevich left reach theoretical legacy behind, that often differenciates from an image, that have been made about him. Theoretical tractate “Suprematism. World as non-objectivity or eternal peace” have been written after suggestion of Mikhail Gershenzon to write down philosophical ideas appeared in the mind. In this tractate Malevich revealed himself as a classical thinker – he meditates on God, his perfection and other attributes, such as eternity. He recalls Descartes ontological argument and the problem of cogito. Afterwards, he speculates on man’s nature after the Fall and on eternal peace of God, evoking reminiscences with Leibniz’s “Theodicy”. Ideas of Malevich can also be juxtaposed with Plato’s path to inteligible Forms and Kant’s thanscendental subject, as well as ideas of St Augustin, Anselm of Canterbury and Nicolaus of Cusa. I would like to draw new picture of intellectual world of Malevich the thinker, that certainly would illuminate the sense of his works of art.
