FROM THE EDITOR
The present issue of Social Scientist is devoted exclusively to a discussion on Marxian position on aesthetics, and we have selected some papers presented at the seminar on Marxism and Aesthetics held at Kasauli in October 1979. Our thanks are due to G P Deshpande, Anil Bhatti and Vivan Sundaram, convenors of the seminar, and to Jean Chapman for secretarial assistance. We intend to publish a bibliography of writings in Indian languages on aesthetics in general and Marxian perspective on the same in particular. Readers are requested to send their suggestions and titles they would like to be included in the bibliography to G P Deshpande.
