Editorial Reviews

Review

`Review from previous edition This is a richly detailed work that demonstrates that the aesthetics of music must struggle with ontological issues, and aestheticians must discuss music beyond the usual paradigm cases. Anyone serious about the aesthetics of music must grapple with this book, and I wager that the next generation of scholars will regard it as an indispensable classic.' The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism

`Perceptive, rigorous, and accurate ... For anyone interested in the ontology of art, this is an important book. For anyone interested in the ontology of musical works, this is now the basic book, the one with which you must begin. It presents a clear synthesis of many decades of research and provides a great number of new insights.' British Journal of Aesthetics
