Dando por sentado el ‘arte’ de la música: una sociología crítica de la filosofía estética de la música


Los músicos y los profesores se equivocan al tomar como garantía de “arte” la naturaleza, función y valor de la música, es decir, como un asunto de placer estético, expresión metacognitiva o gran “cultura intelectual”. Cuando tales asunciones se identifican con lo que es la música, sobre lo que es ésta y sobre lo buena que es, tenemos un tipo de elitismo o esnobismo (Lynes, 1966) que deja a los estetas en un limbo socioeconómico o intelectual quejándose de que lo que ellos disfrutan y valoran garantiza la prominencia educativa y económica. Pero si la música como arte fuera tan valiosa de forma evidente y clara para otras personas inteligentes como para los músicos y educadores musicales, su importancia para la educación y la sociedad no tendría que ser continuamente defendida.

Palabras clave

Filosofía estética de la música; sociología crítica; perspectiva artística.
