Creative Stillness: Indian Perspectives on Art and Beauty

V.S. Naravane (Author)
Synopsis The essays in this volume deal with major perspectives in the Indian attitude to art and beauty. Two important concepts evolved by ancient thinkers have retained their influence throughout the history of Indian thought. These are the concepts of rasa (aesthetic delight) and dhvani (aesthetic suggestion). The earlier chapters in this book deal with the evolution of these basic concepts. In the later chapters the author discusses the developments in Indian aesthetics in medieval and modern times. The views of leading Indian thinkers on aesthetic issues are examined, with many references to western philosophers of art.
