Audio Book Summary
The national debate over popular music's effect on character is both furious and confused. Carson Holloway is out to shatter the assumptions of pop's critics and defenders alike, showing that music is more beneficial than we think. Plato and Aristotle, Holloway finds, were aware that music can either inflame the soul with passion or can awaken it to reason and help to cultivate temperance. What Holloway proposes-a rediscovery of the musical wisdom of Plato and Aristotle-will completely change the way we think about music.
