Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter deals with an ontological orientation in the subject of music. It was already contended in chapter 1 that music is communication, has meaning and mediates on the physical level between its mental and psychological levels. Such an orientation is topographic in nature since it offers a number of ontological \dimensions" and \coordinates" to profile musicological discourse and helps avoiding misplaced or blurred arguments. The topography involves three mutually independent dimensions: communication, reality, and semiosis. The local nature of this orientation scheme is discussed.
