Music and the Numinous (Consciousness, Literature and the Arts, Volume 8)

Richard Elfyn Jones


The continuum of music-what is it, what does it do, how does it do it-has taxed numerous philosophers over recorded time, or even the verb for what it does (express? arouse? evoke? characterize? embody?) meets with out common contract. no longer constantly is song popular: within the publication of Ezekiel, the prophet likens the expert musician to an ineffectual preacher. Richard Elfyn Jones brings new rules to the conundrum by means of taking over sure philosophers no longer often brought up in reference to tune, particularly Alfred North Whitehead and the classical Greek thought of strategy (as against event), and therefore of strategy theology. The ebook opens up an unique method of the transcendent and, to many, the sacred caliber heard in track, drawing either upon professionals involved in the numinous (that feeling of awe and appeal at the back of non secular event) and upon his personal lifelong engagement with tune as student, instructor and composer.
