Music and the Mind Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Why does music have such a powerful effect on our minds and bodies?

It is the most mysterious and most tangible of all forms of art.

Yet, Anthony Storr believes, music today is a deeply significant experience for a greater number of people than ever before.

In this book, he explores why this should be so. Drawing on a wide variety of opinions, Storr argues t hat the patterns of music make sense of our inner experience, giving both structure and coherence to our feelings and emotions.

It is because music possesses this capacity to restore our sense of personal wholeness in a culture which requires us to separate rational thought from feelings that many people find it so life-enhancing that it justifies existence.

The author also wrote "Churchill's Black Dog".
