ID: 4679518

True friendship, true community, social and sexual alienation, the death of God, the importance of the present momnet, individual autonomy, the corruption of the state, revolution, the end of the present age -- such are the intellectual themes of classic rock.Sixties rock music left behind the harmless bubblegum and surfing ditties of the 1950s to become a vehicle for the thoughtful commentary upon the human condition. Theories and motifs from philosophy, theology, and literature were reshaped, refracted, and transfigured in this intelligent new popular art form.Classic rock, argues James harris, should be taken as seriously as the loftiest creations of art and literature. In 'Philosophy at 33 1/3 rpm,' he lays the groundwork for an informed appreciation by exhibiting philosophical themes in the finest rock songs.Professor Harris's examples encompass all the major rock artists of the classic period (1962-1974), including Paul Simon, Elton John, Pink Floyd, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, The Moody Blues, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Kinks, Cat Stevens, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, and Joni Mitchell.His analyses draw upon the ideas of Aristotle, Bonhoeffer, Camus, Descartes, Freud, Kant, Laing, Marcuse, Marx, Nietzche, Nozick, Rousseau, Sartre, Thoroeau, and Tillich, as well as the Bible and other scriptures, to situate the preoccupations of the classic rock lyricists in the Western intellectual tradi arts and literature,biographies,composers and musicians,philosophy,politics and social sciences Philosophy, Open Court

Harris, James F.:
Philosophy at 33 1/3 RPM (Tr) - Paperback

ISBN: 9780812692419

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: OPEN COURT PUB CO], Among Professor Harris's detailed exegeses is Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock", which he sees as a defence of Rouseau's view of human nature against that of Hobbes. He argues that Mitchell's "We've got to get ourselves back to the garden" refers to Rousseau's call for a return to simple existence where natural human goodness can flourish. In another exegesis, Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon", one of the most celebrated of all rock albums, he argues that many listeners fail to understand that it is a systematic exploration of R.D. Laing's radical antipsychiatry concepts, the dark side of the Moon symbolising the authentic self, in contradistinction to the false self, which reflects light from the external source of social convention.
