What is Art? This perennial question is forcefully thrown open by the present day electronic expansion of its field and proliferation of art s. Toward the treatment of this great question with deepest philosophi cal underpinnings, this collection of studies means to lay a ground. I t is presumed that art, transcendentality, the designs of the cosmos m ight yield some of their mysteries while we investigate the Orchestrat ion of the Arts stretching into all main lines of the human creativity : literature, history... and encompassing the distinctive and yet symb iotically inclined music, song, painting, opera, drama, stage decor, a rchitecture, and ornament.
