(p.79) Chapter 5 Enactive consciousness, intertextuality, and musical free improvisation:
Music and Consciousness

Bennett Hogg

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the connection between the idea of consciousness understood as enactive cognition and the perceptions within philosophy that ‘knowledge depends on being in a world that is inseparable from our bodies, our language, and our social history — in short, from our embodiment’. Various avatars of these three factors of our knowledge — body, language, and history — reappear over and over in what follows. However, what has become the main theme of the chapter arrived unexpectedly in the connection that emerged between an understanding of consciousness as an enactive phenomenon, and a speculative and specifically musical/sonic interpretation of the idea of intertextuality.
