9780823268344: The Much-at-Once: Music, Science, Ecstasy, the Body (American Philosophy)

In this capstone work, the late Bruce Wilshire seeks to rediscover the fullness of life in the world by way of a more complete activation of the body’s potentials. Appealing to our powers of hearing and feeling, with a special emphasis on music, he engages a rich array of composers, writers, and thinkers ranging from Beethoven and Mahler to Emerson and William James.

Wilshire builds on James’s concept of the much-at-once to name the superabundance of the world that surrounds, nourishes, holds, and stimulates us; that pummels and provokes us; that responds to our deepest need―to feel ecstatically real.

About the Author:

Bruce W. Wilshire was Senior Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. His many books include Fashionable Nihilism: A Critique of Analytic Philosophy and The Primal Roots of American Philosophy: Pragmatism, Phenomenology, and Native American Thought.

Review:

“The Much-at-Once is an extraordinary edifice, a cathedral of concepts, a summa of Bruce Wilshire's distinguished and diverse writings. It is unprecedented in our time.” (―Edward S. Casey Stony Brook University, SUNY)

“For decades, the late Bruce Wilshire has showered us with incandescent prose, teaching us to reflect and see beyond the banal, the habitual, the perpetual vises that often render our experiencing inert. In this last bequest from Wilshire, he teaches us how to listen, how to hear.” (―John J. McDermott University Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Humanities in Medicine, Texas A&M University)
