Book News Annotation:

Originally printed in 1954, this study draws from musicology, physics, physiology, psychology, and aesthetics to provide an overview and introduction to the psychology of music. Drawing on his research in psychology and acoustics, R<'e>v<'e>sz (1878-1955) describes the physical, physiological, and psychological aspect of sound, with consideration to the elements of tone, the theory of intervals, and the nature of consonance and dissonance. He also discusses major issues in the psychology of music, including the relationship between talent and ability.

I define music as the shortest distance between God and man.It is held that if a sage and a musician both strive for God,the musician will get Him first!
Psychology,the fascinating science of human and animal behavior(Morgan and King) becomes even more fascinating when it is used to explain certain aspects of music,e.g. why do we like certain types of music and not others?How and why do our likings towards change with time?Take other examples.A depressed person listens to a sad song and gets more depressed while listening to one full of comedy certainly lifts his spirits....a straight application of music therapy.From a philosophical angle,while words make you think a thought, music makes you feel a feeling.In combination,a song makes you 'feel' a thought(E.Y.Harburg).When we understand what we feel, the impact of the feeling is more.This I feel is the main objective of this introductory book.
