Philip Glass: Words Without Music

Barnes and Noble, Union Square - 33 East 17 Street
7pm, $0

The long-awaited memoir by “the most prolific and popular of all contemporary composers” (New York Times). A world-renowned composer of symphonies, operas, and film scores, Philip Glass has, almost single-handedly, crafted the dominant sound of late twentieth-century classical music. Rapturous in its ability to depict the creative process, Words Without Music allows readers to experience that sublime moment of creative fusion when life merges with art. Biography lovers will be inspired by the story of a precocious Baltimore boy, the son of a music-shop owner, who entered college at age fifteen, before traveling to Paris to study under the legendary Nadia Boulanger; Glass devotees will be fascinated by the stories behind Einstein on the Beach and Satyagraha, among so many other works Continue Reading »

The Longue Durée of Empiricism in the Humanities: Patterns versus Interpretations

Columbia University, The Heyman Center - 2960 Broadway, Floor 2 (Common Room)
6:15pm, $0

How empirical are the humanities? For over a century, empiricism has almost exclusively been attributed to the sciences. The sciences search for patterns and laws, while the humanities aim at understanding unique events. The sciences try to explain the world, while the humanities aim at interpreting it. The sciences aim for objectivity, while the humanities are subjective and speculative Continue Reading »
