The Body, Music, and Healing
Nothing is more ironical than strengths that generate weaknesses. I think particularly of the ability of Western philosophy and science to objectify the world. To so sharply demarcate things and pin them down that they become objects. Ob-jecta — the Latin roots connote things thrown in front of us. So framed and constituted in experience, things transformed into objects “out there” are subjected to scientific observations and experimentations that tease out, or force out, some of their hidden features.
