Classical Music and Intelligence

Classical Music and High Intelligence

Being a major fan,  I should hope that it were true.  But, I'm dubious.  Equally I'm dubious about the other side of the proposition.  And I will note that if you have a will to, you can learn to enjoy nearly any kind of music.  One would profit from reading the Stravinsky chapter of Jonah Lehrer's Proust Was a Neuroscientist.


  1. Steven,

    Flattering, but dubious.

  2. Dear Fred,

    Yes, I'm immediately suspicious of anything that redounds to my own glory. Highly flattered, but also dubious.
