Here is a very short assignment to expedite BesanÃ§on and Vernant: You can submit it on Harvey by Sunday night late. The answers to each question should be concise and short. I’m looking for the essential.
1. BesanÃ§on: What is the basic difference between philosophical iconoclasm and biblical iconoclasm?
2. Briefly explain why the two most iconoclastic scriptural religions (Judaism and Islam) are iconclastic and how.
3. Vernant: What is the special nature of the colossos (also spelled with a k) as a primitive but fundamental symbol? How does it function–what is its meaning?
