Seventh in the "Aesthetics in Music" series, A Humanistic Philosophy Of Music is a scholarly, philosophical evaluation of music's role in communicating the human experience. Chapters expound at length upon the material, form, meaning, style, permanence, composites, context, and conception of music, and the interplay between music's creation, message and perceived meaning, and an intuitive comprehension. In particular, A Humanistic Philosophy Of Music raises the concern that the humanistic values of music are currently being subverted or ignored by overwhelming, inevitable, irreversible changes in modern culture. Recognizing change and possible loss allows for our collective memory to recall what the onward march of time is so quick to forget, making A Humanistic Philosophy Of Music especially vital reading for advanced music scholars and composers.
