One speaks of ambiguity, for example, when it is a matter of a circumstance to which several interpretations apply at once. Visual art is therefore extremely ambiguous. In a social context, however, we find it difficult to accept ambiguity; we feel more comfortable with unambiguity. Yet – as the Islamic scholar Thomas Bauer describes – there can be no world free of ambiguity, because there is always one option left, because nothing can be definitively and comprehensively explained.
