Tom and Elizabeth, a graduate of MIT in Economics, discuss music’s impact on the individual’s mind and its influence on a population’s collective identity. Topics include:
- The 1960s hippy “dropout” mentality; the Frankfurt School’s influence on youth
- How music is paired with negative messages that undermine Western culture; the contamination of the current musical discourse.
- Plato’s ideas for creating a space for art to maintain its beauty and uplifting quality
- Elizabeth’s research into how the brain processes musical information and the use of melodies as a means of therapy.
