By Jonathan A. Weiss on April 7, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This systematic account of the philosophical meaning of the Nine Marjor Art forms in literature, music, and plastic arts offers insights, a basis for understanding the arts, and philosophy as an examination of nature, presuppositions and connections at its finest. The author also participated in all the art forms as well as interviewed expert practicioners. The result is not only profound but informed by actual experience and involvement.
