Christian and Oriental Philosophy of Art
Look Inside the Book
Description

Contents:

 

1. Why exhibit works of art?  2. The Christian and oriental, or true, philosophy of art  3. Is art a superstition, or a way of life? Postscript : is art a superstition or a way of life? : a review  4. What is the use of art, anyway?  5. Beauty and truth  6. The nature of mediaeval art  7. The traditional conception of ideal portraiture  8. The nature of "folklore" and "popular art"  9. Beauty of mathematics : a review.

From the Jacket:

The nine essays in this book are among author's most stimulating. They discuss such matters as the true function of aesthetics in art, the importance of symbolism, and the importance of intellectual & philosophical background to the artist, they analyze the role of traditional culture in enriching art, they demonstrate the abstract art and primitive art, despite superficial resemblances, are completely divergent and they deal with the common philosophy which pervades all great art, the nature of medieval art, folklore and modern art, the beauty inherent in mathematics, and the union of traditional symbolism and individual portraiture in premodern cultures.

The author is a great orientalist and has covered the philosophic and religious experience of the entire premodern world, east and west, and for him primitive, medieval European, and classical Indian experiences of truth and art were only different dialects in a common.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA
I have received the book Evolution II.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making this book available to me.  You have been so helpful and kind.
Colleen, USA
Thanks Exotic India, I just received a set of two volume books: Brahmasutra Catuhsutri Sankara Bhasyam
I Gede Tunas
You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
