Formatted Abstract/Summary
This book chapter appears in a volume which addresses the lack in scholarship on Schopenhauer’s philosophy of music. So far most interpreters focussed on Richard Wagner's and Friedrich Nietzsche's interpretations of Schopenhauer's philosophy of music, and little has been published on Schopenhauer's own writings. This chapter advances the scholarship on Schopenhauer's philosophy of music in two ways: First, the cessation of sensations is a precondition to liberation from suffering as envisaged by Schopenhauer in the fourth book of The World as Will and Representation. However, as the result of Schopenhauer's philosophy of music, there arises an interpretative tension between the perception of melody as free play of the Will in the imagination of the individual and the bodily sensations as the location of the Will in the individual. The result of this critical analysis highlights the uneasy junction of idealism and materialism in Schopenhauer's philosophy of music. The second innovative strand of this enquiry concerns the writings of Paul Deussen, who is one of the most influential yet underrated exegesists of Schopenhauer's philosophy. Excerpts from his Elements of Metaphysics are analysed to underline the narrowing of the scope of interpretation of Schopenhauer's philosophy of music.
