With original essays by philosophers, psychologists, musicians, literary theorists, and ethno-musicologists, The Philosophy of Rhythm opens up wider-and plural-perspectives, examining formal affinities between the historically interconnected fields of music, dance, and poetry, while addressing key concepts such as embodiment, movement, pulse, and performance.

Edited by Peter Cheyne (Associate Professor, Shime University), Edited by Andy Hamilton (Professor of Philosophy, Durham University) and Edited by Max Paddison (Professor Emeritus of Music Aesthetics, Durham University), with a chapter by Martin Clayton (Professor of Ethnomusicology, Durham University).

Coming in December 2019 (Oxford University Press).
