The rational and social foundations of music by Max Weber( Book )

11 editions published between 1958 and 2009 in English and German and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Possono le armonie musicali delle sinfonie settecentesche o i ritmi sonori delle composizioni su pianoforte servire alla costruzione di un'analisi sociologica della nostra cultura? Se a condurre l'analisi è Max Weber, la risposta è decisamente affermativa. Con intuito geniale Weber esplorò l'universo della musica, analizzò i dati empirici e arrivò a teorizzare una vera e propria sociologia musicale. La prima nel suo genere, nata in forte rottura sia con la tradizione che considerava il sistema armonico logico e immutabile, sia con quella di matrice materialistica, che riduceva la musica, e l'arte in generale, a semplice emanazione della tecnica. Per Weber, invece, nulla è naturale, tutto nasce da fattori immanenti come la cultura e la predilezione estetica. Weber passa in rassegna gli elementi essenziali della musica europea moderna; individua le differenze strutturali che distinguono la musica occidentale, fondata sull'armonia degli accordi, da quella extraeuropea, informata al principio della distanza; trova nell'antica Grecia e nel suo sistema musicale basato sul tetracordo l'origine delle marche specifiche della società occidentale moderna; e a partire da lì rintraccia i fattori che hanno influenzato l'evoluzione musicale, come le caratteristiche degli strumenti e la tonalità del linguaggio. È così che arriva a comprendere perché solo in Occidente si sia sviluppata una musica armonica. Max Weber non riuscì a concludere Sociologia della musica prima di morire. L'opera venne pubblicata postuma l'anno successivo dalla sociologa femminista Marianne Schnitger, sua moglie, e dal musicologo Theodor Kroger. Questa nuova edizione critica, la prima italiana, è proposta dal Saggiatore a tutti coloro che siano interessati a conoscere uno degli sviluppi più originali e interessanti del pensiero del grande sociologo tedesco

Small town and the Nation; the conflict of local and translocal forces by Don Martindale( Book )

19 editions published between 1969 and 1977 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study of Benson, Minnesota, Professors Martindale and Hanson examine the sources and manifestations of local-translocal tensions in the institutional life of a typical small town. The authors begin by describing the town's physical and cultural setting, and briefly sketch the community's history. Their examination of the attitudes and life-styles of Benson's population reveals a polarization between those citizens who are struggling to preserve the friendly atmosphere and pace of the small town and those who are trying to update Benson to urban and national standards. The conflict between local and cosmopolitan attitudes is apparent in Benson's economy, in its structures of power and influence, and in its various agencies of socialization. It is concluded that recent increases in state and national legislation affecting local affairs, proliferation of the power of Federal agencies, greater standardization and national organization of economic and financial institutions, and extended power and pervasiveness of electronic and printed mass media are all bringing Benson closer and closer to national norms in terms of life-style, social attitude, and political and economic structure.
