      From the Back of the Book:The work spans the diversity of musical theory and practice by means of a definition of music and a gradation of it into seven kinds. The author hit upon such a definition as a result of insights his gurus gave him into musical concepts and Sanskrit syntax into the techniques of creating structures of beauty in music into explanatory concepts in philosophical . How are we to conceive of acts that suddenly expose the injustice of the current order? This is a question that has puzzled philosophers for centuries, and it’s the question that animates Dominik Finkelde’s book Excessive Subjectivity: Kant, Hegel, Lacan, and the Foundation of Ethics (Columbia University Press, ).

        Briefly a philosophy student at Yale, Meltzer wasn’t afraid to consider that rock music was the world itself, a battle between purpose and purposelessness, and take it from there. I agree that philosophers need music more than musicians need philosophy; Augustine’s philosophy of time (Confessions XI, De Musica Libri Sei Book 6) is informed by reflection on musical (poetic) rhythm and meter. I have argued that this is the origin of the mathematics of the infinite (Cusa, Leibniz, Cantor).

      Aesthetics, the philosophical study of beauty and taste. It is closely related to the philosophy of art, which treats the nature of art and the concepts in terms of which works of art are interpreted and evaluated. This article addresses the nature of modern aesthetics and its underlying principles and concerns. The bibliographic sources provided here on non-Western and non-traditional philosophy and/or non-Western forms of dance include S. Davies (, , , and ) on Balinese Legong, Fraleigh ( and ) on the Japanese form of dance known as Butoh, including asking whether Butoh is a philosophy, Friedman’s forthcoming essay on post.
