The Cambridge history of Western music theory by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )

38 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) The Cambridge History of Western Music Theory is the first comprehensive history of Western music theory to be published in the English language. A collaborative project by leading music theorists and historians, the volume traces the rich panorama of music-theoretical thought from the Ancient Greeks to the present day. Recognizing the variety and complexity of music theory as an historical subject, the volume has been organized within a flexible framework. Some chapters are defined chronologically within a restricted historical domain whilst others are defined conceptually and span historical periods. Together the thirty-one chapters present a synthetic overview of the fascinating and complex subject that is historical music theory. Richly enhanced with illustrations, graphics, examples and cross-citations, as well as being thoroughly indexed and supplemented by comprehensive bibliographies of the most important primary and secondary literature, this book will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike.

Rameau and musical thought in the Enlightenment by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first intellectual biography of the French composer and theorist Jean-Philippe Rameau. Rameau synthesised the vocabulary and grammar of musical practice into a concise scientific system, earning himself the popular title of 'Newton of the Arts'. Ranging widely over the musical and intellectual thought of the eighteenth century, Thomas Christensen is able to orient Rameau's accomplishments in the light of speculative and practical considerations of music theory as well as many of the scientific ideas current in the French Enlightenment. He shows how Rameau incorporates ideas ranging from neoplatonic thought and Cartesian mechanistic metaphysics to Locke's empirical psychology and Newtonian experimental science. Additional primary documents help clarify Rameau's fascinating and stormy relationship with the Encyclopedists, Diderot, Rousseau and d'Alembert [Publisher description]

Eurobarometer 57.0 Agriculture, Energy, and Discrimination Issues, February-April 2002 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from standard trend questions, instead focusing on agriculture, energy, and discrimination issues. Respondents gave their views on the role of the agricultural policy of the European Union (EU), whether the policy was playing its role well or badly, in what situations the EU should use an agricultural policy, and whether the EU should subsidize agricultural products or grant more funds to the overall rural economy and to direct support for farmers. Another subject of the surveys was energy problems. Respondents indicated to what extent different sources of energy were used in their countries, whether energy use was increasing, which energy sources contributed significantly to global warming and climate change, and which factors could make a significant impact on the amount of energy used in the EU. Those polled provided their opinions on how to solve the problem of EU dependency on other countries in terms of energy supply, what governments' priorities with respect to energy should be, and the main reason for lack of interest among young people in energy-related matters. They were also asked what they were doing to save energy, what energy-saving measures they would support, whether they would pay more for energy produced from renewable sources, whether they paid attention to energy use when buying products, whether they knew how much they paid for electricity last year, and whether they were aware of EU activities in energy-related research. Respondents named what sources they used to obtain information about energy issues, gave their opinions about producing nuclear energy using nuclear fusion, named energy-related areas that they would like to know more about, indicated which energy sources would be least expensive, most efficient, and environmentally friendly in 2050, and commented on whether in 20 years all energy needs would be satisfied by one or by a mix of different energy sources, and if so, which ones. The poll also elicited respondents' views on discrimination issues. Those polled were asked whether in the last two years they themselves were discriminated against or harassed or witnessed someone being discriminated against or harassed at work, when looking for a job, in public places, when getting housing, or when they were at school, and if so, what the reason was. Respondents were also asked whether they and people in general thought that it was right/wrong to refuse to give anyone a job, training, or promotion, or to deal differently with customers based on their ethnicity, religion, physical disability, mental illness, age, or sexual orientation. In addition, respondents were asked whether they knew their rights in case they felt discriminated against and whether they were willing to complain or go to court if something like that happened. Demographic and other background information collected includes respondents' age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, type and size of locality, and region of residence

whether better career prospects, financial circumstances, social benefits, public services, or social life would encourage them to move. On the subject of the disabled, respondents were asked if they personally knew anyone (including a family member, friend, acquaintance, neighbor, colleague, client, pupil/student, or other) with a disability or infirmity that limited their activities, how at ease they felt in the presence of people with disabilities, and how at ease people in general felt in the presence of people with disabilities. They were asked how difficult they thought it was for certain groups of people with disabilities (i.e., blind, deaf, physically and intellectually disabled people) to access public transport and services, restaurants, university or school, their work place, sports events, and cultural events, whether access to public places for people with disabilities had improved over the last ten years, who was actually responsible for making improvements in these matters (e.g., local authorities, national government, non-governmental organizations, the EU, etc.), and who should be responsible. They were asked to indicate how aware they were of each of 21 types of disabilities (e.g., visual, hearing, neuromuscular, skeletal, arthritis, cancer

surveys. Respondents were queried as to which institutions funding humanitarian aid they knew about, how well informed they felt about the Humanitarian Aid Office (ECHO), which sources of information about ECHO they used, whether European citizens should be informed about aid activities funded by the EU, and, if so, what sorts of information should be available. Questions were also posed regarding whether it was important to fund humanitarian aid activities outside the EU, whether humanitarian aid was more effective when provided by each government separately or by the EU collectively, and whether the EU should increase its spending on humanitarian aid activities. Those polled were also asked about the single European currency, effects of the EU enlargement, common EU foreign policy and defense and security policy, whether the EU should have a constitution, what languages they spoke, and how often they watched news on TV, read news in papers, and listened to news on the radio. Demographic and other background information provided includes respondent's age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, region of residence, and subjective size of community
Eurobarometer 57.2 Health Issues, Cross-Border Purchases, and National Identities, April-June 2002 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from standard trend questions, instead focusing on health issues, cross-border purchases, and national identities. European Union (EU) respondents provided information on their health status, including whether they had long-standing illness that limited their work or daily activities. They also answered questions about the health care system in their countries and indicated how well health care was run, whether the government should spend more money on health care, and if they were willing to pay more taxes to contribute to health care. They were also asked how well they were getting by with their households' income, who should pay for taking care of elderly parents, and who should decide what long-term care services an elderly person needs. Another major focus of the surveys was cross-border purchases. EU respondents were asked whether in the last 12 months they bought anything for private use in stores located in other European Union countries, and if so, how they bought the product and how much they paid for it. They were also asked whether the introduction of the euro and the possibility of buying online made them more interested in buying products or services from other EU countries, whether in the last 12 months they heard or saw an advertisement from another EU country, whether they would be more or less confident buying different products or services in another EU country, and what factors would affect their level of confidence. European Union citizens and residents of three European Union candidate countries (the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland) described how close they felt to the inhabitants of the city/village/region where they lived, their national fellows, EU citizens and other European residents, Arabs, Turks, Russians, United States' citizens, Gypsies, Jews, and others. They also selected from a list those things or feelings that were crucial to sense of belonging to their nation and to Europe. EU respondents were asked what the most important issues facing their countries were and what their governments should spend extra money on. Additionally, respondents indicated whether they were satisfied with their lives, and the state of the economy, laws, and public transport in their countries. The background information collected includes respondents' age, gender, nationality, marital status, left-right political self-placement, occupation, age at completion of education, household income, type and size of locality, and region of residence

science. Respondents also expressed their views on the role of ethics and responsibility in scientific research, who should be blamed for the mad cow disease problem and how such problems should be prevented. Other items elicited respondents' views on media coverage of scientific and technological topics, their levels of trust in and regard for various professions, the possible reasons for a declining interest in scientific careers among European young people, and the potential effects of that decline. The European Union (EU) was a focus of several questions, including which policy areas respondents believed the EU was active in, which it should be active in, and whether respondents supported research at the European, as opposed to the national, level. They also answered a number of questions designed to elicit their opinions on the current state of European research and how it could be improved. Respondents were asked to give their views on the EU agriculture policy, such as what its purpose was, what its purpose should be, and whether it had been effective in achieving its purpose. Further questions focused on the euro, including respondents' level of interest in the euro, how well informed they believed they were about the euro, and other questions
Eurobarometer 55.0 European Union Enlargement, the Euro, and Dialogue on Europe, March-April 2001 by Thomas Street Christensen( )

1 edition published in 2002 and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This round of Eurobarometer surveys, which diverged from the standard topics, focused on respondents' views regarding the enlargement of the European Union, public discussions on the future of Europe (Dialogue on Europe), and the single European currency, the euro. Given a list of 21 European countries that were not European Union (EU) members plus Morocco, respondents were asked which countries they had heard of, which they had visited or planned to visit, which they had ties to, which they thought had been accepted as candidates to join the European Union, which should be the first to join, which should not join, and which countries they wanted to know more about in terms of various topical areas. Those polled were asked a number of questions about the planned EU enlargement, such as how many countries should be allowed to join, which member countries would benefit most from enlargement, whether enlargement would benefit respondents' personal lives, how they rated the development of the European Union, their level of satisfaction with the speed of enlargement, and which criteria should govern whether applicants were admitted to the EU. Opinions were elicited on a number of possible effects of enlargement, some possible negative effects of participation in

views on different aspects of EU enlargement. Respondents were asked which of candidate countries they had visited or had ties with, whether they wanted to know more about those countries and on what subjects, and whether they wanted to live, work, study, or go on vacation in any of the candidate countries. A number of questions examined respondents' views on the effects of EU enlargement. Those polled specified what effects EU enlargement would have and why, which EU countries would benefit from the enlargement, whether this process would affect economy sectors in EU countries, and whether it would lead to a significant migration from new member states. They were also asked how well informed they were about EU enlargement, how they wanted to be informed on this subject, whether they were for or against EU enlargement, and what criteria should be used in deciding whether a country was ready to join the EU. The surveys also elicited respondents' opinions about the euro, common foreign policy, common defense and security policy, which institutions and which countries had influence on decisions made within the EU, and whether the EU decisions were good for respondents' countries and for them personally. In addition, those polled were asked which TV channels
