Philosophy and Popular Music
The ancient philosophers have long recognized the spiritual and psychological significance of music. Many of them have written extensively on the subject. Plato, whose idea of art and music was a major influence on Western culture, regarded music as a branch of ethics. He recognized the correspondence between character and music and believed that the most harmonious and simple compositions were most beautiful. His belief that music is a reflection of the moral order of the universe led him to denounce complexity and over-complication.
The philosophical arguments about music have been a source of controversy since the nineteenth century. Different school of thought has contributed to a great extent of the controversy. Some point to an inability to precisely render musical meaning, and others believe that music does not have any meaning. In reality, this is not true; different listeners can derive entirely different meanings from the same piece of music. In addition, spoken and written language is unable to capture the subtleties of musical meaning. Consequently, verbal explication of a musical composition raises more questions than it settles. Some philosophers who claim that all meaning can be rendered in a linguistic form declare that music is meaningless.
Popular music has a wide following. It is characterized by emotional lyrics and themes. Various instruments are used to accompany this music, including guitars, keyboards, and percussion instruments. Some of these instruments are electronically amplifications. Popular music has long been a major adjunct to rituals, drama, and popular culture. The ability of music to express human emotion has made it a central component of popular culture, and its emotional effects have been exploited in many fields, including psychotherapy, geriatrics, and advertising.
