Abstract
On first inspection, Diana Raffman’s Language, Music, and Mind appears to be focused quite narrowly on a rather obscure problem in the aesthetics of music, the problem of accounting for the alleged ineffability of musical experience. The case that Raffman builds in this clear, well-structured book, however, has far-reaching philosophical implications for philosophy of mind, epistemology, general aesthetics, philosophy of the emotions, ontology, and phenomenology.
