Whittled Wordscapes

Essays on Music and Life

by Edwin E. Gordon

© 2008 GIA.

Every great thinker and innovator, no matter the depth and breadth of his work, has moments of reflection on the business of living. Although the level of commitment required to take an insight from an “ah-ha!” moment to a fully realized groundbreaking concept is high (some would say, even life-consuming), even in the midst of such an endeavor, there is time to think on the small (and not so small) aspects of what it means to be human; what it means to get along in the world.

Edwin E. Gordon is perhaps the world’s principal thinker and researcher in music education. But, as with other great thinkers, Gordon has had many moments of reflection on the business of living. In Whittled Wordscapes, he shares his thoughts on a wide variety of topics, from Money, Athletics, and the Arts, to Mazeltov; from What Is Intelligence? To Yellow Pads and Computers. In this collection of 54 brief essays Gordon shares thoughts and insights that are inspiring, challenging, and always thought-provoking.

Whittled Wordscapes is a rare glimpse of a great thinker’s mind as he considers what makes the world tick. As you read, you will discover your own “ah-ha!” moments, and will find yourself pondering what Gordon says long after putting down this fascinating book.
