Article/Chapter Title:The Aesthetic (rasasuvada) and the Religious (brahmasuvada) in Abhinavagupta's Kashmir Saivism
Journal Title:Philosophy East and West
Author(s):Larson, Gerald
Religion(s):Hinduism
Date of Publication:1976

Pages:371-87
Annotation:Seeking a comprehensive understanding of Abhinhavagupta’s system of thought, this article brings together Abhinavagupta’s views about aesthetics and philosophy or religion, which are often treated separately. Larson argues that Abhinavagupta managed to transcend reductionistic dualisms by “homologizing” the aesthetic and the religious without collapsing them. As distinct components of culture, each plays an important role in constituting and expressing the totality of a given culture and the individual lives within it.
