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.

Testimonials
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 :)

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.
