Classical Music and the History of Consciousness (10 week course with listening assignments, readings, and conversation via email or FaceTime)

Music expresses basic truths about the cosmos and our place in it, truths also found in religion and philosophy. As consciousness touches these basic truths, now from one side, now from another, so does music. The history of music belongs to the history of consciousness.

Through listening, reading, and discussion, we explore this history in music from 1600 to the present.
