Is music a drug

  1. 1. Music addiction<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. IS MUSIC A DRUG?<br />
  4. 4. What is a drug ?<br />For the purposes of this discussion, I define a drug to be. . . . .<br />A substance, which when consumed by a person, alters the state of mind of that person, as a result of direct action of the substance on the brain or nervous system.<br />
  5. 5. Music as Illusion ?<br />we might say that music is more of an illusion than a drug.<br /> It acts on perceptual modules in the brain whose purpose is to perform genuine perception.<br /> Music is the only significant illusion that is generated and consumed for pleasure in a major way.<br />
  6. 6. Music as Super-Stimulus<br />According to the super-stimulus theory of music:-<br />music consists of contrived “speech”<br />which consequently influences the listener's emotional response to the speech of the speaker.<br />
  7. 7. Is music addictive ????<br />A user is addicted to a drug if they have a compulsive need to continue taking it, regardless of the negative consequences of doing so.<br />There is the weaker notion of "psychological dependence", which implies that you will miss not having something, but not to the extent that you would deem yourself to be suffering. I think that might be a fair description of many people's relationship with music.k<br />
  8. 8. Can Music cause Delusions?<br />Music can be used to rouse people's feelings, particularly in religious and political situations.<br />music can play a role in helping to dispel any discomfort caused by doubts and uncertainties about the causes that they want to believe in.<br />
  9. 9. Conclusion<br />So, is music a drug? <br />
