Aesthetic Communication
Aesthetic Communication
Description
About the Book:

This study of aesthetic communication is inspired by a desire to see some contemporary problems relating to the communication and enjoyment of art in the light of the ancient Indian aesthetic theories. Man's perfection of the modes of communication and travel has transformed the multiplicity of world cultures into a single unit with delicate regional flavours. Thus, even though we are struck by certain perennial characteristics of the human situation we have also become increasingly aware of our cultural heritage with its myrlad ramifications. Consequently we are becoming more and more conscious of our responsibility of preserving the delicate nuances of this rich past along with an effort to maintain communicability.

The book attempts to show the ancient Indian thinkers had reflected on many of the important problems of aesthetics. They displayed a keen insight into the role of medium in the emergence of a work of art. Consequently their theories were closely associated with actual art practices. Furthermore, art was seen as intimately related to society and was never taken to be an imaginative exercise divorced from moral and social values. But since the aesthetic experience was treated as sui Generis, inspite of its moral significance, art was never treated as a handmaid to morality.

The book highlights throughout the problems of perception, enjoyment and evaluation of art objects with a view to explore possibilities for a future aesthetic theory.

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
