ART AS DIALOGUE
ESSAYS IN PHENOMENOLOGY OF AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE

GAUTAM BISWAS

foreword by KAPILA VATSYAYAN

1995, 155pp., index, ISBN: 81-246-0043-0, Rs 200(HB)


It focuses on a totally new methodology for understanding the concept of aesthetic experience, a dialogue between the subject and the object, I and Thou. Most significantly, the conception of
"art as dialogue" is stipulated to work not as a means, but as an end, i.e. the consummation of art-experience itself. In this scheme the principle of relationship, not the substance, constitutes the reality of aesthetic experience and the model allows one to encompass within its scope the pre-linguistic, linguistic and trans-linguistic phases of the
relationship between the man and the art.
