Tan, Leonard; Lu, Mengchen – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2018
In classical Greek philosophy, the pursuit of Truth was done primarily through logical argumentation using language as "Truth tool." The major thinkers in classical China, on the other hand, were famously suspicious of language, with Confucius declaring, "I wish to be wordless." They turned instead to music to express the…

Varkoy, Oivind – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
The point of departure in this article is the hegemony of technical rationality when it comes to the justification of music education. This is considered as an example of uniformity, sameness, and homogeneity, or worse, simplicity and naivety--or even worse, a sweet innocence--regarding understanding and thoughts about life, society, and culture…

Golding, Rosemary – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
In 1851-2 the Trustees of the Reid bequest at the University of Edinburgh undertook an investigation into music education.

Kertz-Welzel, Alexandra – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
Community music is a successful concept in the world of music and music education. Based on ethnomusicological research, community music tries to implement the notion of music for all that transforms societies and people. While celebrating informal learning and the musical amateur, community music has never really been philosophically challenged…

Tan, Leonard – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2016
In music education, thinking is often construed in terms of acquiring conceptual knowledge of musical elements. Research has found, however, that instrumental music educators have largely neglected conceptual teaching and learning. This begs the following questions: What is the nature of thinking in instrumental music education? How should…

Steel, Sean – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2014
Although much has been written about Nietzsche's views on education over the years and much has also been written about Dionysus the god of wine and ecstasy, very little attention has been given to the meaning of, and need for, a Dionysian education. This article is an attempt to begin that project. Drawing Nietzsche's articulation of…

Benedict, Cathy – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
With the use of Bruner's concept of story, broad generalizations from the US, and political philosophy, this article suggests that comparisons between music programs throughout the world are meaningless unless we acknowledge how pervasive, insidious, and menacing is the rhetoric of the global market economy. Political philosophy is one process of…

Thwaites, Trevor – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
Creativity is inextricably linked to the ontology of being; as the history of philosophy frequently shows, it encompasses both the need to transform and be transformed. In this essay I examine the notion of "being creative" on the way to opening up our relationship to the essence of creativity, taking Heidegger's interpretation of…

Haskins, Stanley – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
The concept of "gradually adaptive frameworks" is introduced as a model with the potential to describe the evolution of belief evaluative systems through the consideration of reasonable arguments and evidence. This concept is demonstrated through an analysis of specific points of disagreement between David Elliott's praxial…

Winter, Richard – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2013
This paper proposes a theory to explain the remarkable emotional power of our response to abstract music. It reviews and rejects metaphysical arguments derived from notions of a divine spiritual realm and from absolute forms of human reason. Its conclusion is that musical experience is always essentially inter-subjective and potentially…

Carr, David – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2010
Moral significance has been attributed to music from antiquity: for example, both Plato and Aristotle made much of the power of music to influence and shape moral character. However, it would also seem often assumed that music and musical experience have some kind of spiritual significance or value for human development. The present paper sets out…

A reply to Bennett Reimer on the teaching of philosophy to K-12 students is presented. The author of this article poses two problems linked to pedagogy and philosophy in undergraduate teacher preparation.
