Rameau and musical thought in the Enlightenment by Thomas Street Christensen( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2004 in English and held by 627 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]

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 55.1OVR: Young Europeans, April-May 2001 by Thomas Street Christensen( file )
1 edition published in 2002 in No Linguistic Content and held by 1 library worldwide
This round of Eurobarometer surveys diverged from a focus on standard measures. During the fieldwork for Eurobarometer 55.1 (see EUROBAROMETER 55.1: GLOBALIZATION AND HUMANITARIAN AID, APRIL-MAY 2001 [ICPSR 3361]), an oversample of young respondents, aged 15-24, was added to the basic sample in order to obtain a total of at least 600 young respondents per country. An additional set of questions was administered to these young respondents eliciting responses on a number of topics, including the meaning and the importance of the European Union, areas in which the EU should be more or less active, sources of information about the EU, important aspects of society making participation of young people in society easier, suggestions for better integration of minorities into society, and opinions on foreigners living in the respondent's country. These young respondents were also asked about their leisure activities and organizations to which they belonged, their use of the Internet, use of computers and other electronic equipment (e.g., PC, CD, DVD, mobile phone), languages they spoke and would like to learn, countries they had visited in the last two years and reasons for the visits, employment considerations and money sources, and problems they would have if they

Eurobarometer 57.0 Agriculture, Energy, and Discrimination Issues, February-April 2002 by Thomas Street Christensen( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 1 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
Eurobarometer 57.2 Health Issues, Cross-Border Purchases, and National Identities, April-June 2002 by Thomas Street Christensen( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 1 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

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

whether they had influence over the decision-making processes at their workplace and in deciding how to do their tasks. They also compared different aspects of their current job with what they had been doing five years ago, described relations between management and employees, and commented on how their work affected their health and their lives after work. Another major focus of the surveys was the pension system. Those who had already retired were asked at what age they had retired, what the main source of their retirement income was, whether their financial situation was better than before retirement and what it would look like in five to ten years, and whether the state pension allowed them to get by easily. Non-pensioners supplied information about when they intended to retire, what their main source of income would be after retirement, what percentage of their current household's total income after tax they considered sufficient in retirement, and how they were saving for their retirement. Additionally, respondents were asked what a good pension system should look like, how the pension should be provided, what level of minimum guaranteed income should be provided for elderly people, whether older workers should be forced to retire at a fixed age

another major focus of the surveys. Those polled answered a set of questions regarding the ideal family size, number of children they had, how old they were when they had their first child, and how many children they wanted to have. Respondents were also asked whether they used the Internet, if so, where and how often, how satisfied they were with the way democracy worked in their countries and in the EU, how often they watched the news on TV, listened to the news on the radio, and read news in daily newspapers, and whether the EU should have a constitution, a common foreign policy, and a common defense and security policy. A battery of questions was also posed regarding the euro. Those polled expressed their opinions on the effects that the introduction of the euro would bring, whether replacing national currencies with the euro was a good idea, how well informed they were about the euro, and how comfortable they felt using the euro. A final set of questions sought respondents' opinions on EU enlargement: how well informed they were about EU enlargement and what sources of information on this subject they used, results that EU enlargement would bring, countries that they favored to become EU members, criteria important in deciding whether a country should

training, such as the extent of training/ qualifications, self-assessment of skill, and use of the Internet in daily life, were also asked. (4) Questions about the topic of health sought to identify sources of health information, use of the Internet as a health information source, and trust in various sources such as consumer organizations, trade unions, government, and media. (5) Questions about the environment included the extent to which respondents worried about aspects of the environment such as the ozone layer, acid rain, pollution of rivers and lakes, and waste management, and the extent to which they felt informed about these issues. Questions regarding personal efficacy, sources of information, trust in various groups, level of government involvement, and solutions to environmental problems were also posed. (6) Questions about the topic of public safety probed respondents' perceived level of safety, belief in the risk of theft or burglary within the next year, and agreement or disagreement on statements relating to public safety (such as burglar alarms can reduce crime, poverty leads to crime, and organized crime has infiltrated the economy). Demographic and other background information provided includes respondent's age, gender, nationality
