MTSU CLASS PROVIDES MUSIC FOR THOUGHT THIS FALL SEMESTER
Dr. Ron Bombardi Describes “The Philosophy of Music” on “MTSU on the Record”
(MURFREESBORO) – Dr. Ron Bombardi, chair of the Department of Philosophy, will discuss a new fall course, “The Philosophy of Music,” on “MTSU on the Record” with host Gina Logue at 7 a.m. this Sunday, July 19, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
“Not only have recent feminist and postmodern sensibilities shifted debates from the recital hall to the dance hall, but the social significance of music and music-making has come into focus as a long neglected dimension of political theory, economics and the philosophy of revolution and social change,” says Bombardi. “So, too, modern neuroscience has opened surprisingly new avenues of inquiry into the psychology of musical performance and experience.”
