This chapter presents an excerpt from Mysore Hiriyanna's 1954 book Art Experience, in which he examines the aesthetics of the literary arts as well as the connection between aesthetics and ethics. Hiriyanna is best known as a historian of Indian philosophy. His text Outlines of Indian Philosophy (1932) remains a standard text worldwide. He also made important contributions to Vedānta studies and to ethics and aesthetics. Hiriyanna taught for many years at Mysore University. In Art Experience, he considers the separation of aesthetics from general philosophy, along with the distinction between nature and art. He also discusses the characteristics of art experience, the content and method of art, and the connection between art and morality.
