Music, Morals, & the Body

£8.99

Product description

In this monograph, Jukka Sarjala, a docent of Turku University, explores a long neglected issue in music historiography, the history of passions and emotions. The study concentrates on the philosophy of music in early modern Turku, a Protestant town in the Baltic Sea region. The author suggests that the doctrine of affects, the basic discourse on music of this period, did not constitute itself as an isolated aesthetic system, nor as the hidden wisdom of professional musicians. Rather, it formed part of political theory and moral philosophy. For those interested in the ways in which music arouses desire, excites the listeners and animates their bodies, this book provides a welcome perspective.

Condition: Light wear only, good / very good condition, pages clean and bright, binding strong.
