Overview

Prompted by the challenges of changing technologies and the conceptual isation of art, this book revives enchantment as the very sense of art . The aesthetic enchantment lifts human experience toward the extraord inary whose crucibles it conjures. Thus the creative human being finds within the imaginal sphere of his or her own soul an answer to innerm ost longings as the 'truth of it all' (Tymieniecka). This collection offers a vast panorama of perspectives in which enchantment surges, in cluding music, painting, ancient mysteries, French baroque festivities and the mystical Mexican procession.
