Abstract and Keywords

This article discusses the early aesthetic education movement to illustrate how politics and social realities shaped philosophy and other scholarly work. It underscores the need for historians and philosophers to be more self-reflexive while locating their work within wider social, historical, and political contexts so that they and future teachers better appreciate the social, economic, and other forces shaping their own and the profession's thinking. It is further argued that scholars and teachers must closely examine the profession and its problems in order to identify previously obscure but important developments affecting music education.

Keywords: early aesthetic education, education movement, philosophy, teachers, John Dewey, music education
