About the Author

R. A. Sharpe is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Wales, Lampeter. He has held visiting positions in America, Australia, and Finland.


`There is much to disagree with in Music and Humanism ... But it is important in that it dares to tease out its own project 'piecemeal' in a compelling, progressive manner. Sharpe may become a trendsetter in that his book, perhaps for the first time, runs something new alongside the traditional absolute music versus ideology debate. If so, that something new requires further definition. This sets the challenge Sharpe is posing for future musical and
philosophical enquiry.'
