The metaphysics of musical works
|Abstract||Given realism about musical works, we must ask what to identify musical works with. I criticse two theories (that works are fusions of performances and that works are eternal types) before presenting my own theory identifying (that works are identical to sets). I then defend that theory against objections.|
