It is not easy to determine the nature of music, or why any one should have a knowledge of it. Shall we say, for the sake of amusement and relaxation...? Or shall we argue that music conduces to virtue, on the ground that it can form our minds and habituate us to....a certain character? Or shall we say that it contributes to the enjoyment of leisure and mental cultivation...?
--Aristotle, Politics, Book VIII
