Art And Aesthetics of Rabindranath Tagore
Art And Aesthetics of Rabindranath Tagore
Description
About the Book

Aesthetics is out and out philosophy and as such any dissertation claiming to have kinship with aesthetics needs to be out and out philosophical. Exactly this is the key point here in this monograph. Tagore's standing has been sought to be understood purely from this point of view. Benedetto Croce is a listless crusader on this path. The author here has taken to crocean line in furthering the cause of purely aesthetic approach to the definition, meaning and accepted classification of fine arts as suggested by the Indian concept of Pancapradipa or Hegelian concept of art in its five-fangled ramification.

The book is a departure from the usual big bodied bizarre books dishing out non-aesthetic propositions in the name of art and aesthetics.

Thiru, UK
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.
Bernd, Spain
