"With the unassuming title of Ceramics, Rawson has presented a very clear, orderly and thought-provoking guide for discussion. He provides words for those nebulous, or nonexistent, thoughts that students avoid talking about in critiques, and our professional associates talk all around, using whatever art language is being worn out at the time--'Is your work postmodernist yet?' Now we have no excuse to complain that there is no vocabulary."--National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Newsletter

Tantra; the Indian cult of ecstasy by Philip S Rawson( Book )

38 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suggesting as its final goal a vision of cosmic sexuality, Tantra embodies fundamental patterns of symbolic expression in a view of life which offers a uniquely successful antidote to the anxieties of our time. The act of creation is continuous ; therefore sexual intercourse between human beings can be a microcosmic representation of the creative process---a symbolic tribute to the great Goddess from whose womb, and by whose wisdom, all things in the Universe are manifested in Time.
