The subject of this presentation is an intriguing moment in 19th century German cultural and academic life, and that is the emergence of a wide-ranging discussion about the relationship between music, work, society, and political economy. Focusing mainly on the political economist Karl Bücher, this presentation examines one social scientist’s encounter with music and follows its reverberations outside of academic life.
