Summary:
This book provides a unique approach to some of philosophy's fundamental issues. It points to music as a model for exploring such questions as, "What does it mean to value?" This is not a musical study, per se, but a philosophical text that uses music as a vehicle for investigating these and other metaphysical, axiological, and aesthetic matters.
