Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Philosophical and Cultural Theories of Music contains table of contents and volume foreword. Music is a ubiquitous and hard to grasp cultural form. It is semiotically and aesthetically open-ended; yet even a 'non-musical' person is able to follow the basics of rhythmic structure and flow. Its presence in social and cultural life is further complicated by its multiple forms of existence - as both 'live' and 'technologically mediated', as self-referential language and as accompaniment to text, dance and other cultural expressions.

Keywords: cultural life; music
