Abstract:   (4733 Views)
One of the terms that is currently used for art quiddity is the term “aesthetics”. Although this term has a new meaning in Western philosophy with the advent of the German philosopher Baumgarten and then Immanuel Kant, but nowadays it is used for different kinds of art, including the arts derived from the tradition, and this usage is considered controversial by Eastern philosophers. In this paper, we try to explain why using the term “Indian aesthetics” is not recommended for the remnants of this civilization by reviewing different aspects of traditional Indian art, and showing that such an usage causes some special aspects of Hinduism, that were the motivation to produce artworks, remain unknown. To achieve such goal, we try to list particular features of Indian
art such as being ritual and then classify its conflict with the concept of aesthetics.
Keywords: Indian art, traditional art, Indian aesthetics, ritual art, dharma
