This project focuses on selected themes and concepts from psychoanalysis, music, and history. Through an overview of musical pieces from various eras of western classical music it attempts to demonstrate a shift in understanding the notion of meaning in music. Theoretical foundation of writings by Sigmund Freud, Carl Gustav Jung, Ernst Mach and philosophers of the Frankfurt School is used in order to argue that a mutual interaction between music and its socio-cultural and political environment during the era of Enlightenment had a significant impact on deobjectification of musical meaning.
