Music in Our Lives: Why We Listen, How It Worksby Jonathan L. Friedmann
Music research has entered something of a Golden Age. Technological advances and scholarly inquiry have merged in interdisciplinary studiesdrawing on psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, anthropology and other fieldsthat illuminate the musical nature of our species. This volume develops, supports and challenges that body of research, examining key issues in the field, such as the difficulty of writing about music, the formation of musical preferences, the emotional impact of musical sounds, the comparison of music and language, the impulse for making music and the connection between music and spirituality.
