[Autom. eng. transl.] The aesthetic-philosophical literature relating to the "art of sounds" was almost always accompanied, when it was not intertwined with them, by other readings and research that analyzed and interpreted theories and musical experiences according to different and interdisciplinary perspectives: theology, mathematics, psychology, physics, sociology, linguistics, semiotics, ethnology, electronics, computer science etc. Although it is customary to start the discipline of musical aesthetics only after the foundation of aesthetics as a scientifically recognized discipline from academic knowledge, and precisely from the essay by E. Hanslick "The beautiful musical" (1854), the history of thought which questions the theoretical foundations and the aesthetic meaning of music, beginning in the West in the ancient world, certainly at least starting from the Pythagorean speculation about the concept of harmony. Plato, Agostino, Boethius, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Adorno, Schönberg, Jankélévitch were those who made considerable changes in the aesthetic conception of music.
