FYS 1042 - Music and Ideology

Hours: 4
In this course we will examine ways in which philosophy, art, literature, and mathematics have altered the course of Western music history. Using a chronological approach, we will examine the effects of Enlightenment thought, Romanticism, ‘Sturm und Drang’, Nationalism, Symbolism, Modernism and other seminal ideas and philosophical approaches. We will end the course with an examination of key topics from mathematics and music, including temperament and the golden ratio.
