Bowman displays a wide knowledge of the history of philosophy of music and familiarity with several important contemporary perspectives ... it introduces a wide range of positions. Another valuable feature of the book is that each philosopher's views on music are put in the context of his other beliefs ... Bowman provides accurate accounts of the positions he describes. The book is the product of considerable scholarship. Another plus is that Bowman is surely right to think that students can not appreciate a philosopher's views on music without some knowledge of his philosophical system ... Bowman is to be commended for undertaking to introduce musicians to philosophy of music. He believes, and is right to believe that unexamined music is not worth performing ... ... sophisticated students can be referred to this volume in some circumstances. ( James O. Young, The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, Winter 1999 (57:1))
Bowman's volume provides a useful survey of philosophical aesthetics of music ( Andy Hamilton, Durham University, British Jrnl of Aesthetics, vol 39, no 3, 1999)
a deeply pluralist book ... Wayne Bowman's pluralism does not lead him to produce a rootless, or even routeless, book, since he still manages to accept that the philosophy of music has had a history ( Anthony Pryer, Journal of the Royal Musical Association, 124 (1999))
Bowman's method of treating his material is well considered. The scope of discussion is admirable. About twenty different views of music are given a thorough presentation ... a unique source for anyone interested in the nature of music. ( Pentti Maattanen, British Journal of Music Education, Vol 16 No 3, 1999)
An introduction to diverse philosophical perspectives on the nature and value of music, ranging from the ancient Greeks to idealism to phenomenology to contemporary socio-cultural critiques. Designed to introduce the serious music student with no philosophical background to the vitality of music philosophical discourse, it explores a broad range of music philosophical terrain, showing the philsophers' reasons for holding what can seem to the non-philosopher like extraordinarily bizarre notions, while at the same time pointing out the philosophical shortcomings of what musicians often take for common-sense musical truths.
