Abstract: This paper highlights a new interpretation of dynamic state of subject from the viewpoint of Ranganathan’s theory. Ranganathan introduced the following three concepts in order to describe the state of subject, viz., continuous infinite universe, spiral model of subject development and idea plane. These three concepts together depict four dimensions of a subject starting from its birth. The name given to these three concepts together is Ranganathan’s three-tier description of subject.
