Encyclopaedia of Aesthetics is aimed at introducing aesthetics and presents the relation of art and philosophy. These relations throw a fresh light at once on the significance of major art and on the imaginative meaning of major philosophies. An introduction to the experience of the arts and the implications of art in civilization, the general relations of art to the whole of our experience, the origins and the functions of the artistic process in society, the aesthetic problems and attitude, representation of art, social evaluation of art and its influence are some of the related topic which are equally important in the study of aesthetics. This book on aesthetics is justified not so much by leading the reader to further books on aesthetics, but rather by returning him to the arts, a return, it is to be hoped, marked by sharpened and deepened appreciation. This book is written in this very spirit which can provide the readers with comprehensive and authoritative knowledge on aesthetics.
