1 Visual Presentation The changing landscape in musicology towards more empirical approaches is not a displacing of the humanities spirit by an antithetical scientific ethos. It is fundamentally a response to a clearer epistemological understanding of the role of methodology. Changing conditions simply allow us to be better music scholars, to embrace higher standards of evidence, and to be more acutely aware of the moral and esthetic repercussions of our knowledge claims, including claims that something is unknowable or that some phenomena ought not to be investigated. Our strongest criticisms should be levied at those who insist on speculative discourse when the resources are readily available to test such knowledge claims.
