The last talk in the Blackheath Philosophy Forum's 2015 season will take 
a look at the relationship between Philosophy and Music.
Philosophers have traditionally shown a strong interest in music, 
usually focussed on its sub-discipline of aesthetics. Some philosophers 
(Adorno) have gone so far as to suggest that some musicians (Beethoven) 
are actually doing philosophy. I will explore whether we are dealing 
merely with an analogy, or whether there is a substantial, unique and 
illuminating way in which philosophical thinking can be extended into 
music, or musical-thinking into philosophy.
*SPEAKER:  Goetz Richter*, Associate Professor of Violin and Chair of 
String Unit, University of Sydney

The Forum meets at the Blackheath Neighbourhood Hall cnr Gardiner 
Crescent & the Great Western Highway, 4pm-6pm, followed by informal 
discussion at the pub.Admission $10 includes a big afternoon tea before 
question time. Hall is heated.

All welcome!
