Save to active project


The present volume is the result of a project on Representation that engaged me for over a decade. During this long engagement my friends around the world have encouraged me. Professor Ronald Roblin, formerly on the staff of philosophy at Buffalo State College, initiated the project by involving me in 1985 in publishing a special issue of the Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics on Representation. Since then the project has been on the way to its completion in the present form. In its completion major credit goes obviously to the contributors.

I had an opportunity to discuss various aspects of representation with Professors Goran Sorbom, Tommie Zaine, Christopher Norris, and Robert Sharpe during my visit to the Universities of Uppsala and Wales in 1993–1994. Professor Stephen Davies, apart from contributing his chapter, arranged for the chapter on film representation by Professor Thomas Wartenberg. Professor Milton Snoeyenbos, my associate as the foreign editor of the Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics, has encouraged me in a variety of ways in addition to contributing on dance. Professors Donald Brook and Dieter Peetz have obliged me by their personal permission to reprint the chapters they published in the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism (43, no. 2 [winter 1983]) and British Journal of Aesthetics (27, no. 3 [summer 1987]), respectively.

Professors Michael Mitias at the University of Kuwait, Phillip Alperson at Temple University, Frank Hoffman at West Chester (Pennsylvania), Grazia Marchiano at the University of Siena (Italy), and Ellen Dissanayake at Port Townsend (Washington) have taken keen interest in the publication of this project. My wife, Ranu, and two sons Chunnilal and Chamanlal have always shared my intellectual appetite. Chamanlal and my pupil Sanjay Sarangi have prepared the index. I am grateful to all of them.

Finally, my obligation to Pamela St. Clair, Acquisitions Editor, Culture and Media Studies, and the editorial board at Greenwood Publishing Group, Inc. is limitless. By undertaking the publication of this project, the authorities of GPG
