Book Description Illuminating the author’s unshakable faith in the power of music in people’s lives, this text draws upon the fields of literature, philosophy, psychology, and religious thought to highlight the importance of music in an increasingly chaotic and techno-centric world. Issues such as the folly of the work/play mindset and the relationship of music to time’s inexorable passage are discussed, as are many ways in which music can lead to a deeper understanding of the humancondition. The superficiality of the market-driven world of professional pop music and the ineffectual approach of traditional music education are also explored.
