For decades, Prof. Hiriyanna’s Art Experience has been a lamp which has provided illumination to many a serious student of Indian aesthetics.
A contemporary of the late Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, he was steeped in Indian philosophy and his writing was characterised by a careful economy of phrase – a model of precision and lucidity. He was the first among the pioneers to establish meaningfully the relationship of philosophy, aesthetics and life. Prof. Hiriyanna pointed at the core concept of the Upani]sadic view which was as relevant to philosophy as to art. He turned the course of the discussion on Indian art and aesthetics from history to its fundamentals of a world view, and the diverse paths of the quest for truth, viz., through specu­lative thought or alternately, refinement of senses and sense perceptions. He highlighted the Indian view that achievement of a life of harmony was not through extinguishment of interests, but by an expansion of them through training and refinement of feeling and the cultivation of emotion.
The present volume carries fifteen contributions on topics of Indian aesthetics. After a penetrating analysis of the fundamental concepts envisaged from a traditional point of view, Prof. Hiriyanna interprets them succinctly. He elucidates the theory of Rasa from the point of Sankhya in a masterly fashion; equally illuminating are the other essays on Rasa and Dhvani, and Sanskrit poetics and Forewords contributed by him. Each essay illuminates a facet of Indian aesthetics or an aspect of poetics.
About the Author
"Professor M. Hiriyanna was one of the greatest Sanskrit scholars and vedantic thinkers of our time. Trained in Sanskrit in the traditional system, he acquired grounding in Sanskrit grammar, etymology and prosody in the old oral way of learning. He was one of the pioneers of Kannada renaissance movement. Prof. Hiriyanna first wrote on psychology and educational subjects in Kannada.
A prolific writer, he has two famous books, Outlines of Indian Philosophy and Essentials of Indian Philosophy, both are examples of the art of writing at its best. Apart from the two classics, he has edited some difficult philosophical texts and elucidated them through his introductions and notes.
