Call Number: MT1 .R435 1989
This 3rd edition is a basic resource for music and arts philosophy. From the product description:
This book advances the philosophy of its previous editions into new territory, recasting it in light of emerging ideas and interests in philosophy in general and in philosophy of music in particular. The foundational concept of this book—that the values of music are gained through direct experiences with its meaningful sounds—remains intact, but is explained and applied in broader, more inclusive scope, with a synergistic philosophical stance as the basis. In addition it clarifies and updates for readers the explanations of musical feeling, musical creativity, and musical meaning that are at its core. For music educators, music lovers, or anyone who wants a synergistic philosophy of music education inclusive of a variety of positions.

Call Number: MT1 .E435 1995
From the author's website:
Praxial comes from the word 'praxis.' As Aristotle used the word in his Poetics, 'praxis' connotes action that is embedded in and responsive to a specific context of effort.
I call Music Matters a praxial philosophy because this one-word label captures a key idea (but not all key ideas) of this philosophy: that a full understanding of the nature and significance of music involves more than an understanding of pieces or works of music.

Based on topics that frame the debate about the future of professional music education, this book explores the issues that music teachers must confront in a rapidly shifting educational landscape.
The book aims to challenge thought and change minds. It presents a star cast of internationally prominent thinkers in and beyond music education. These thinkers deliberately challenge many time-worn traditions in music education with regard to musicianship, culture and society, leadership, institutions, interdisciplinarity, research and theory, and curriculum.
