The Origins of Music

If historical events are to mark the boundaries of a life lived, one could be forgiven for suspecting that Carl Stumpf (1848–1936) might have been a political revolutionary: born during the months of revolutionary uprisings across Europe, he died a few months after Hitler's troops occupied the Rhineland in violation of the Treaty of Versailles. Yet, as a scientist, his convictions carried no muscular force; still less any political conviction. His sphere was intellectual. Though, as this chapter shows, this would prove no less influential in charting the course of the disciplines of psychology and (ethno)musicology, than the events that framed his life would serve to alter the course of European history.

Keywords:   political revolutionary, psychology, ethnomusicology, european history
