With this pioneering and long-overdue collection of essays on auditory perception, Matthew Nudds and Casey O'Callaghan aim to start correcting this state of affairs. They deserve much praise, not least for their own substantial contributions and splendid introduction. Ian Phillips, Times Literary Supplement This volume comprises ten excellent recent essays on the philosophy of sounds and auditory perception… The editors provide an introductory essay which serves to helpfully introduce not only the volume, but also the field of philosophy of sound as a whole… The essays in this book all show that the philosophy of sound and auditory perception can be as complex, interesting, difficult, rewarding, and important as the much more commonly explored topics of physical objects and vision.
