Music, Madness, and the Unworking of Language (Columbia Themes in Philosophy, Social Criticism, and the Arts)
Music, Madness, and the Unworking of Language (Columbia Themes in Philosophy, Social Criticism, and the Arts) by Brand: Columbia University Press at Translate This Website. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. In the romantic tradition, music is consistently associated with madness, either as cause or cure. Writers as diverse as Kleist, Hoffmann, and Nietzsche articulated this theme, which in fact reaches back to classical antiquity and continues to resonate in the modern imagination. What John Hamilton investigates in this study is the way literary, philosophical, and psychological treatments of music and madness challenge the limits of representation and thereby create a crisis of language.
