Diversity of music is traduced not only in spatial terms but also temporally. Music, as every cultural phenomenon, has a history besides his own geography. But also the general concept of nature as well as the particular concept of human nature owns a history. This must have a consequence in the concept of musical act. There is not a human community without music, that´s a general agreement, but this correspondence between music and humanity has a different signification when it´s identified with our unique feature of language or with other characteristics that we share with the rest of animals.
*This conference, “The concept of Music as a function of the conceptions of natural environment and human nature”, will take place in next XVI Encuentro Música-Filosofía in Ronda on 3, 4, and 5 of July 2019.
