AbstractWhat sense does it make to teach the aesthetics of music today? The discussion begins with the illusion of identifying music and language, by regarding language as communication. We use words and propositions in thinking about music, but music is “something other” than words. An analysis of Cook’s conception of a musicographic network leads to thinking about the non-verbal existence of musical works and musical experience.
