Systematic Musicology

The term "systematic musicology" was coined by Austrian musicologist Guido Adler in 1885 in a paper entitled "Domain, method and aim of musicology," in which he proposed that musicology could be divided into two nominally equal halves: historical and systematic. Over a century later, in 1997, thanks largely to the efforts of Rudolf Flotzinger, (Professor of Musicology until 1999), the University of Graz advertised for Austria's first Professor of Systematic Musicology. Today's systematic musicologists identify with subdisciplines such as music psychology, music physiology (including neuroscience of music), music acoustics/psychoacoustics, music information sciences, music sociology, and music philosophy (including aesthetics).
