How Can Music Education Be Religious?
Jorgensen, Estelle R.
Philosophy of Music Education Review, v19 n2 p155-163 Fall 2011
This essay examines Alfred North Whitehead's claim that education should be construed as religious, and by extension, that music education should be religious. The analysis of questions relating to Whitehead's understanding of the notion of "religious," the defensibility of his claim, and its implications for notions of spirituality and music education and the practical work of music education is cast against the backdrop of the constitutional prohibition of the establishment of religion in the United States.
