Overview

For thirty years Jamie C. Kassler has published groundbreaking research into the way models establish relations between the separate domains of music and science. Models present facts belonging to one category in idioms of another - for example, by conceiving music as if it were matter in motion, but when the two categories are identified as one, models function not as theories but as symbols of belief. In this collection of her essays, the author treats both functions of models in a series of case studies. Chapters 1-6 provide instances of music's relation to epistemology, logic and the early modern sciences of developmental biology, continuum mechanics and physiological psychology, whereas Chapters 7-10 provide instances of what science has given back to the philosophy and theory of music. Thus, Music, Science, Philosophy makes an important contribution to intellectual history, as well as to the history and philosophy of music theory and science.

Author Biography: Jamie C. Kassler, Musicologist, Australia.
