"A necessary book, one that those who are passionate about music and philosophy have long been awaiting. There is simply nothing like it." - Jerrold Levinson University of Maryland, USA

"An intelligent and comprehensive overview of the Philosophy of Music, featuring contributions by many of the leading figures in the field. The editors have done a remarkable job soliciting topical and historical essays from both musically-minded philosophers and philosophically-minded musicians. It should become the standard reference work in the field." - Brian Kane, Yale University, USA

"By bringing together in one volume the most up-to-date thinking from the best minds in the business, from all the relevant disciplines, Gracyk and Kania have provided an invaluable service not only to numerous scholars and their students, but equally to musicians and their audiences." - Guy Dammann, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, UK

The coverage of topics is ideal, while the contributors range from emerging talents to the biggest names in the field. An essential resource for anyone with an interest in the philosophy of music." - Aaron Ridley, University of Southampton, UK

"A reader like me seeks an introduction that faithfully reviews the major topics, offers a critical perspective on the current controversies, provides resources for further study, and presents the material in clear language and at a level of sophistication appropriate to the discourse. In these respects, the editors have crafted an excellent collection." -Alfred I. Tauber, Boston University, USA
