Ananda K. Coomaraswamy (1877-1947) pioneered one form of cultural studies in India. His analysis of Indian civilization extended to Indian ideas and theories of architecture. This volume in the Collected Works presents the essays that best represent his thought on the hermeneutics of Indian architecture, i.e. its "why," not "how."

Book Description Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Oxford University Press, 1995. Hardcover. Condition: New. This volume presents the essays that best represent Coomaraswamy`s rapidly developing thinking on the hermeneutics of architecture-its "why" not `how". These can best be understood in the order in which they were written. From a discussion of the "Pali Ka??ika: Circular Roof-plate" of ancient wooden construction in 1930, Coomaraswamy moved on to a much more widely ranging metaphysical exploration of `The Symbolism of the Dome" (1938). He made a conceptual leap to connect the physiognomy of costume with architectural meaning in his essay on "U??isa and Chatra: Turban and Umbrella" (1938); profoundly connected "Decoration" to essential meaning in "Ornament" (1939); and extended the "significant form" of architecture to that which transforms men in "Svayamat???a: Janua Coeli" (1939). A summing-up essay on "An Indian Temple: The Kandariya Mahadeo" (1947), published in the year of his death, placed the form of the temple at the still centre of Coomaraswamy`s thought. Printed Pages: 144. Seller Inventory # 96682
