The Sensuous in Art Reflection on Indian Aesthetics
The Sensuous in Art Reflection on Indian Aesthetics
Description
From the Jacket: Contrary to current aesthetic theory, the author does not see Indian art essentially on the lines of Indian mysticism, as brahmananda sahodara, twin of mystical experience. That the Indian artist experiences a mystical vision while creating art is an accident, while essentially his artistic activity thrives on extolling the sensuous experience. It arises by an imaginative participation with color, sound, touch, and smell and does not derives its value from being close to either a moral framework or mystical quintessence.

In the five chapers of the book Dr. Jhanji directs her attention largerly to drama and painting. The study is based on the text of Natyasastra, Kamasutra, Visnudharmottara, Silparatna and Citralaksana.

About the Author:

Rekha Jhanji is a professor in Department of Philosophy, Punjab University, Chandigarh. She has contributed many scholarly paper in field of aesthetics to various learned journals. Her publications include: Aesthetic Meaning: Some Recent Theories(1980) And Aesthetic Communication: the Indian Perspective (1985). Dr. Jhanji was a fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla for two years (1985-87).

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
