This chapter argues that the present crisis confronting musical scholarship needs something like an antimethod that will ask how current methods work by examining their enabling conditions. Given the deadlock between opposing groups, and the impasses at which debates repeatedly seem to stall, it recommends starting at the impasses to see how they arise. Rather than build another tower, or another pyramid of truth, it seeks to occupy the space between existing structures, to inhabit the shadows, to map the labyrinth. An overview of the succeeding chapters is presented.
