Music Numinous and Mathematics: Form and Analysis Through Fourier Space

Название: Music Numinous and Mathematics: Form and Analysis Through Fourier Space
Автор: Eva Li
Издательство: Independently Published
Год: 2018
Формат: PDF
Размер: 89 Мб
Язык: английский / English

This volume brings new ideas to the conundrum by taking up certain philosophers not usually cited in connection with music and the classical Greek notion of process. The book explains the state of the art in the use of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) of musical structures such as rhythms or scales. The book opens up an original approach to the transcendent and, to many, the sacred quality heard in music, drawing both upon authorities concerned with the numinous (that feeling of awe and attraction behind religious experience) and upon his own lifelong engagement with music as scholar, teacher and composer.

Автор: Barnaby Rogerson
Издательство: Picador
Год: 2014
Формат: EPUB
Размер: 10 Мб

Rogerson's Book of Numbers is based on a numerical array of virtues, spiritual attributes, gods, devils, sacred cities, powers, calendars, heroes, saints, icons, and cultural symbols. It provides a dazzling mass of information for those intrigued by the many roles numbers play in folklore and popular culture, in music and poetry, and in the many religions, cultures, and belief systems of our world. The stories unfold from millions to zero: from the number of the beast (666) to the seven deadly sins; from the twelve signs of the zodiac to the four suits of a deck of cards. Along the way, author Barnaby Rogerson will show you why Genghis Khan built a city of 108 towers, how Dante forged his Divine Comedy on the number eleven, and why thirteen is so unlucky in the West whereas fourteen is the number to avoid in China.

The Image of Man: The Creation of Modern Masculinity

Название: The Image of Man: The Creation of Modern Masculinity
Автор: George L. Mosse
Издательство: ‎Oxford University Press
Год: 1998
Формат: PDF
Размер: 15 Мб
Язык: английский / English

What does it mean to be a man? What does it mean to be manly? How has our notion of masculinity changed over the years? In this book, noted historian George L. Mosse provides the first historical account of the masculine stereotype in modern Western culture, tracing the evolution of the idea of manliness to reveal how it came to embody physical beauty, courage, moral restraint, and a strong will. This stereotype, he finds, originated in the tumultuous changes of the eighteenth century, as Europe's dominant aristocrats grudgingly yielded to the rise of the professional, bureaucratic, and commercial middle classes.
