This chapter examines how social antagonisms produce cultural double binds, moments when individuals are caught between different communities and languages that both refuse — and yet somehow demand — integration. In ethnomusicology, for example, such cases may arise when the history of colonialism contaminates the very methodology through which one studies oppressed cultures, leaving one without a language in which to engage the other while feeling a disciplinary imperative that one must engage the other. The essay “Music Theory, Phenomenology, and Modes of Perception” by music theorist David Lewin is analyzed.

Keywords:   social antagonisms, integration, ethnomusicology, David Lewin
