  1. What 4’33’’ Also Is: A Response to Dodd.Matteo Ravasio - forthcoming - Australasian Journal of Philosophy:1-6.
    Julian Dodd persuasively argues that John Cage’s 4’33’’ should be characterised as (1) a silent piece, as opposed to a sonically replete piece, containing the environmental sounds that occur as it is performed; (2) a piece of performance art, but not a piece of music; (3) a work of conceptual art. While I agree with Dodd’s claims, I contend that he fails to account for two features of 4’33’’. I argue that a qualified description of Cage’s work as belonging to (...)

  • What 4′33″ Is.Julian Dodd - 2017 - Australasian Journal of Philosophy 96 (4):629-641.
    ABSTRACTWhat is John Cage's 4′33″? This paper disambiguates this question into three sub-questions concerning, respectively, the work's ontological nature, the art form to which it belongs, and the genre it is in. We shall see that the work's performances consist of silence, that it is a work of performance art, and that it belongs to the genre of conceptual art. Seeing the work in these ways helps us to understand it better, and promises to assuage somewhat the puzzlement and irritation (...)

  • The Aesthetics of Electronic Dance Music, Part I: History, Genre, Scenes, Identity, Blackness.Nick Wiltsher - 2016 - Philosophy Compass 11 (8):415-425.
    Electronic dance music has much about it to interest philosophers. In this article, I explore facets of dance music cultures, using the issue of authenticity as a framing question. The problem of sorting real or authentic dance music from mainstream or commercial clubbing can be treated as a matter of history and genre-definition; as a matter of defining scenes or subcultures; and as a matter of blackness. In each case, electronic dance music, and critical discourse surrounding it, offers fresh illumination (...)

  • “But Is It Science Fiction?”: Science Fiction and a Theory of Genre.Simon J. Evnine - 2015 - Midwest Studies in Philosophy 39 (1):1-28.
    If science fiction is a genre, then attempts to think about the nature of science fiction will be affected by one’s understanding of what genres are. I shall examine two approaches to genre, one dominant but inadequate, the other better, but only occasionally making itself seen. I shall then discuss several important, interrelated issues, focusing particularly on science fiction : what it is for a work to belong to a genre, the semantics of genre names, the validity of attempts to (...)
