Title: Music: vigency of poetical thinking

Institution: UFRJ Doctor in Poetics

Begun: March 1991

Completed: December 1997


This work deals with music and its poetical dimension.

At the beginning, one considers the technics and its hegemony on the Occidental Culture. In succession, the concepts of Aesthetics, History and Analysis are treated as prescription ways. Possibilities of musical understanding are showed other than the understanding about music from a technical discourse. This is presented as insufficient to consider the musical questions.

The memory is considered in its originative relationship with the music, and then the work proposes itself to recuperate the presence of the memory and of the memorable as prime constituents of the musical sense.

It follows a discussion concerning music in the range of the thinking, understanding music as a privileged way of the poetical thinking.

In the end, the question of the poetical thinking is treated, precisely said, in its relation with the etymological structure of the greek term filosofiva (Philosophy). In this one, it's showed another possibility of articulation that reveals music as strength of the presence from poetical thinking.
