It gives me immence pleasure to place the present work "The Indian Theory of Aesthetics a reappraisal" by A.V. Subramanian before our esteemed readers. This is the 38th volume being published under the "Golden Jublee of India's Indipendence Series" of Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan. Dr. Subramanian is well known for his scholarship in the field of Sanskrit literature. He is the author of many research works and the present treatise is a new addition to the list.
The author of the book has elaborately discussed the theory of Aesthetics presenting the ideas of Bharata, Bhattalollata, Abhinavagupta etc. The whole work runs into three chapters. In the first, he wrote good introduction to the Indian Theory of Aesthetics, and in the second, the proposed a discussion on the Indian Theory of Aesthetics, ascribed to Bharata but elaborated by Abhinavagupta, I the light of scientific conclusions available today as verified by our own aesthetic experience. The last chapter places a new universal theory of aesthetics developed by the author himself
