Speaking of Music
Laura Odello
Fordham University Press

In the whole occidental tradition of metaphysics, from Plato onward, philosophy tried to contain and neutralize music by reducing it to logos that resonates without harm in the political community. Yet, in the manner of a lapsus, music comes back to haunt the philosophical ear and to expose it to its own excess, that of an uncertain or lacking discourse—another discourse.
