Download E-books Estética de la música (La balsa de la Medusa nº 116) PDF

Cada una de las grandes revoluciones lingüísticas y estilísticas en l. a. historia de l. a. música ha llevado l. a. atención de los teóricos y de los músicos, mayoritariamente, a reflexionar sobre los aspectos propiamente técnicos y lingüísticos correspondientes a cada arte, llegando solo de modo indirecto a afrontar las cuestiones filosóficas y estéticas, y siempre, en cualquier caso, con una actitud vinculada a las nuevas experiencias artísticas. Esto es algo que podemos constatar en el paso del ars antiqua al ars nova, en el paso de los angeles polifonía a l. a. monodia, y también hoy en día en los angeles invención de los angeles dodecafonía y en las radicalmente nuevas experiencias lingüísticas conectadas a las más recientes vanguardias.

Estética de l. a. música aborda de forma sencilla dos cuestiones: los principales problemas estéticos de los angeles música, con los que se entra en contacto en los angeles primera parte, y una breve historia de los angeles reflexión estética sobre los angeles música. Fubini adopta un punto de vista interdisciplinar, que plantea en el centro mismo de su
pensamiento el problema de qué sea, estrictamente hablando, una estética de los angeles música. Este punto de vista configura el marco de un estudio histórico, expuesto de forma breve y concisa.

Download E-books Breve historia y antología de la estética PDF

By José María Valverde Pacheco

Este libro, nacido de l. a. enseñanza, pero con esperanzas de interesar también a lectores libres de cursos y exámenes, sólo pretende ofrecer una mínima síntesis del desarrollo histórico de l. a. estética, sobre todo en su núcleo conceptual. En lo que se llama "ideas estéticas" se reúnen varias perspectivas, en cada momento: así, lo que dijeron los grandes filósofos sobre los angeles belleza y el arte -cuando no callaron sobre tal tema-, y lo que opinaron los propios hacedores o sus críticos inmediatos sin ambición filosófica; todo ello en el contexto de l. a. mentalidad de cada época y, claro está, teniendo como interés supremo los angeles realidad misma de lo estético, es decir, los hechos de las artes y de las letras. Sabemos que sobre estos hechos singulares se puede hablar interminablemente sin llegar a conclusiones fijas, pero se hacen aún más interesantes cuanto más los vemos sobre el trasfondo de las principles y los angeles sociedad en que se insertaron. Cada capítulo lleva, tras su sucinta exposición, una antología de textos típicos, cuyas traducciones -a veces más adaptadas que literales- son de nuestra propia responsabilidad si no se indica otra cosa. Acaso el designio principalmente informativo que ha movido esta obra no l. a. haya librado de sectarismos de diversa índole: querríamos que el más importante de ellos fuera los angeles oposición a los angeles tendencia contemporánea -ya señalada y fomentada por Hegel- a dar más valor a las principles generales que a los hechos y obras singulares.

James Franco's version of I imagine you are absolutely flawed into a movie, with Shields and Powell striving mightily to play themselves and Franco in a aiding function, might be published later this 12 months.
