Elvira Di Bona, Vincenzo Santarcangelo, Il suono. L'esperienza uditiva e i suoi oggetti, Raffaello Cortina Editore, Milano, 2018, pp. 138
The review is intended to present the book Il suono. L’esperienza uditiva e i suoi oggetti by Di Bona and Santarcangelo. It highlights specific aspects such as the uniqueness and completeness of the book, as well as the systematic approach employed in it. Di Bona and Santarcangelo’s work is the first handbook in Italian language concerning the philosophy of auditory perception. Furthermore, it has the virtue to present an organic, up-to-date and interdisciplinary summary of the field of research analysed. Some of its sections are centred on the psychological and neuroscientific literature, while others are more focused on the proper philosophical debate: the overview provides a well-structured and fluid text. References to ordinary auditory situations and to specific musical pieces help the reader to follow the arguments presented and complete the book.
