Philosophical Investigations 29 (3):217-249 (2006)
|Abstract||An argument is presented to the effect that the ability to feel or to experience meaning conditions the ability to mean, and is thus essential to our notion of meaning. The experience of meaning is manifested in the "fine shades" of use and behavior. Theses, so obvious in music, constitute understanding music, which makes music understanding so relevant to understanding language. Applying these notions of understanding, feeling, and experience--as well as their explication in terms of comparisons, internal relation, and mastery of technique--to music, where they are so apt and natural, is fertile both for the philosophy of language and the philosophy of music.
