This book is a philosophical study of the relations between hearing and thinking about music. The central problem it addresses is: how is it possible to talk about what a listener perceives in terms that the listener does not recognize? By applying the concepts and techniques of analytic philosophy, the author explores the ways in which musical hearing may be described as nonconceptual, and how such mental representation contrasts with conceptual thought.
