: Music Numinous and Mathematics: Form and Analysis Through Fourier Space
: Eva Li
: Independently Published
: 2018
: 89
: / 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.

: The Image of Man: The Creation of Modern Masculinity
: George L. Mosse
: ?Oxford University Press
: 1998
: 15
: / 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.
