Music in the Moment

"Jerrold Levinson's new book, Music in the Moment, makes a major contribution to the now flourishing field of philosophy of music. He has a daring thesis about music listening that is going to shake up the experts, and pose for them, and for us all, some very hard questions. To reuse, yet again, the old cliché, no one interested in the field, can afford not to read Levinson's book."—Peter Kivy, author of Authenticities"Jerrold Levinson is one of the world's outstanding philosophers of music. His new book, Music in the Moment, is bold, meticulous, cogent and immensely illuminating of the experience of listening to music."—Malcolm Budd, University of LondonWhat is required for a listener ...

Contemplating Art

Contemplating Art is a compendium of writings from the last ten years by one of the leading figures in aesthetics, Jerrold Levinson. The book contains twenty-four essays and is divided into seven parts. The first is about issues relating to art in general, not specific to one art form. The second and longest part of the book is about philosophical problems specific to music. The third part focuses on pictorial art, and the fourth on interpretation, in particular the interpretation of literature and literary language. In the remaining parts of the book Levinson discusses aesthetic properties, issues in historical aesthetics, humour, and intrinsic value. These lively essays, rigorous but accessible, will appeal not only to philosophers but also to musicologists, literary theorists, art critics, and reflective lovers of the arts.

Aesthetic Pursuits

Jerrold Levinson, one of the most prominent philosophers of art today, presents a new collection of essays, following on from his four previous collections, Music, Art and Metaphysics (1990), The Pleasures of Aesthetics (1996), Contemplating Art (2006), and Musical Concerns (2015). Aesthetic Pursuits specifically complements Levinson's last volume, Musical Concerns, by collecting recent essays not concerned with music, but instead focusing on literature, film, and visual art, while addressing issues of humour, beauty, and the emotions. The essays in Aesthetic Pursuits, which are wide-ranging, will appeal strongly to aestheticians, art lovers, and philosophers alike. The volume contains seven previously unpublished essays by Levinson, in which the author critically engages with notable contemporary contributions to aesthetic theory.

L'art, la musique et l'histoire

Pour Jerrold Levinson, le rapport des oeuvres d'art à l'histoire entre dans la définition même de l'art, d'un point de vue à la fois ontologique, interprétatif et évaluatif. Les essais réunis dans ce volume explicitent cette position en s'attachant à compléter, fût-ce pour les critiquer, les théories institutionnelles qui ont marqué la discussion contemporaine sur l'art et en examinant plus particulièrement la question controversée des oeuvres d'art et du futur. L'approche à la fois contextualiste, historiciste et objectiviste, de Levinson l'oppose aux travaux inspirés par la déconstruction et le relativisme. Elle s'illustre particulièrement ici dans deux essais consacrés.à la musique : "Qu'est-ce qu'une oeuvre musicale ?" et "La musique et les émotions négatives", domaine de prédilection auquel Levinson a consacré jusqu'ici ses recherches les plus importantes.

In this volume, Zangwill develops a view of the nature of music and our experience of music that foregrounds the aesthetic properties of music. He focuses on metaphysical issues about aesthetic properties of music, psychological issues about the nature of musical experience, and philosophy of language issues about the metaphorical nature of aesthetic descriptions of music. Among the innovations of this book, Zangwill addresses the limits of literal description, generally, and in the aesthetic case. He also explores the social and political issues about musical listening, which tend to be addressed more in continental traditions.
