Excerpt from Musical Studies and Silhouettes: Translated From the French of Camille

Guyau, a writer whose loss is deeply to be regretted, has left to us, under the title of: "Art from a Sociological Point of View," a work, admirable in its conception, but incomplete in its execution; his great subject is here treated, only in part, and little else than literature is considered from the point of view suggested. The pages play false to some extent to their title, and the expectation of the reader is disappointed.

Thus we have been tempted to essay for music, what Guyau has accomplished for literature: to seek the sociological or the social in the nature, story and effects of the art of melody. Not the idea, only, but many of the elements of this study, we must borrow from the young master who is gone; we shall follow him, along the paths, which he himself chose, hoping for nothing more than to verify in the particular sphere of music, the general principles which he has laid down.
