Spirituality in Music Education: Transcending Culture, Exploration III
Palmer, Anthony J.
Philosophy of Music Education Review, v18 n2 p152-170 Fall 2010
Spirituality and religion are not synonymous and, in fact, require not only different definitions but also appropriate vocabulary. A deeper discussion of the issues concerning spirituality ensues in several sections: 1) fundamental differences between spirituality and religion; 2) brain operations relative to transcendent states; 3) a definition of consciousness; 4) music, culture, and transcendence; 5) transcendence; 6) transcendence through music, and 7) spirituality in music education. The last section contains several recommendations on how spirituality can be embraced by music educators and included in the curriculum to enhance the worldview of students.
