James M. Baker, David W. Beach, and Jonathan Bernard, eds. Music Theory in Concept and Practice. University of Rochester Press, 1997.529 pp

Nonken, Marilyn

Nonken's article critiques the content and focus of the Music Theory in Concept and Practice. She claims that although the, intention is to reflect the preoccupations of the field today. In this task, it succeeds only in part, that is not fully the case. In fact, the editors have chosen not to focus on the following influences, acknowledged in the introduction: computer science, linguistics, mathematics,
literary theory, gender studies, philosophy, aesthetics, and psychology.
