The Thought of Music by Lawrence Kramer

By Lawrence Kramer

What, precisely, is wisdom of track? And what does it let us know approximately humanistic wisdom in most cases? The considered Music grapples without delay with those basic questions—questions particularly compelling at a time whilst humanistic wisdom is enmeshed in debates approximately its personality and destiny. during this 3rd quantity in a trilogy on musical knowing that incorporates Interpreting Music and Expression and Truth, Lawrence Kramer seeks solutions in either proposal about tune and idea in music—thinking in tones. He skillfully assesses musical scholarship within the aftermath of severe musicology and musical hermeneutics and in view of newer matters with embodiment, impact, and function. This authoritative and well timed paintings demanding situations the existing conceptions of each subject it addresses: language, context, and tradition; excitement and function; and, via tune, the rules of figuring out within the humanities.

The writer gratefully recognizes the Joseph Kerman Endowment of the yankee Musicological Society, funded partly by means of the nationwide Endowment for the arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
