Music: Physician for Times to Come

Campbell, Don

 Campbell writes: "This book grew out of the dawning awareness from a variety of professional disciplines of the ways we listen, perform and observe the effects of music upon the human instrument. Its primary purpose is to explore the paradigms that are emerging around several areas of research: sonic entrainment; the uses of chant to alter physical conditions; use of music for imagery in education and psychotherapy; and the influences of sound reported by philosophers in the Eastern, Western, Christian and esoteric traditions. New questions, new frameworks, new sources of physical, emotional and spiritual renewal are arising, and they do not regard music as only entertainment and performance or taste. We are just beginning to realize the deep and profound scientific, medical, psychological and spiritual questions involved in the power of music" (pp. 1-2). Accordingly, Campbell presents a collection of 23 pieces, some previously published, some not. They are arranged in four parts: I. Listening: The Art of Sound Health (5 chapters); II. Music as Timeless Therapy (6); III. Potpourie of Music’s Potential (6); and IV. The Eternal Future of Sound (6). There is an appendix, "On Being in Order," by Manfred Clynes.
