Blues - Philosophy for Everyone: Thinking Deep About Feeling Low (Paperback)
Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
From B. B. King to Billie Holiday, blues music not only sounds good but has an almost universal appeal in its reflection of the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Its ability to powerfully touch on a range of social and emotional issues is philosophically inspiring, and here a diverse range of thinkers and musicians offer illuminating essays that make important connections between the human condition and the blues.
So, if nobody loves you but your Momma, open the pages and explore:
Blues and the human condition
Women and the blues
Why it can feel so good to feel so blue
The transformation of trauma and loss in the blues
Whether whites ripped off the blues
Blues – Philosophy for Everyone brings together intriguing insights into the connection between the blues and philosophy that will appeal to music lovers and philosophers alike.
