MEDIA REVIEWS
With Cook's emphasis on humanist values and DeNora's emphasis on social conscience, this book goes a long way to exposing the fallacy of this presumed association. In distinguishing empirical methods from positivist philosophy, this volume makes an essential and welcome contribution to the development of music scholarship. While Empirical Musicology is not without its seams, editors Eric Clarke and Nicholas Cook have succeeded in assembling a whole cloth. Given the increasing interest in systematic and observation-based musical research, this book has appeared at just the right moment in time. * Notes *
