A propos de cet article

Fine in Fine DJ: Book shows binding square and secure; text clean. DJ unclipped; mylar-protected. As New. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 288pp. Second Edition [1986]; the first editon was published by Dobson Books in 1977. Hardback with DJ. Keller's writing dances with intelligence and wit' as he offers a passionate defence of individualism in an age when its existence is becoming ever rarer. A prefatory chapter, `Thinkers of the World, Disunite!', expounds Keller's individualist credo. `Vienna, 1938', originally a radio talk, gives his riveting and terrifying account of how he escaped from Nazi Vienna in 1938. Two further chapters, on communist Prague and trends in contemporary psychoanalysis, expose the dangers of collectivism. The longest section of the book, on music, concentrates on the threat of dehumanisation at the centre of the author's own intellectual and emotional life. The finale, on football, suggests that in the relatively simply world of sport, the degeneration of individualism can be observed without difficulty. Hans Heinrich Keller (1919 – 1985) was an Austrian-born British musician and writer who made significant contributions to musicology and music criticism, as well as being an insightful commentator on such disparate fields as psychoanalysis and football. In the late 1950s he invented the method of "Wordless functional analysis", in which a musical composition is analysed in musical sound alone, without any words being heard or read.
