520    Music as a Science of Mankind offers a philosophical and 
       historical perspective on the intellectual representation 
       of music in British eighteenth-century culture. A 
       particularly rich field of investigation, developed 
       between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, was the 
       British philosophy of the mind and of human understanding 
       which looked at music and found in its realm a way of 
       understanding human experience. Maria Semi sheds light on 
       how these reflections moved towards a Science of Music: 
       the discipline that was later to be known as 'musicology'
