          I sometimes think that we could fill a small library with the commentaries on music by philosophers, scientists, and other great thinkers. Brain Pickings offers us an inspiring essay and meditation on what the philosopher Schopenhauer and others on how he thought about music and its impact on our lives. It is the most powerful of all the arts, the art most able to to move and transform us.


“The effect of music is so very much more powerful and penetrating than is that of the other arts, for these others speak only of the shadow, but music of the essence.”
