This audio streaming file is a live recording of the April 25, 1967 session of UCSD's Concepts Class, led by Rosalyn Tureck at her house. After visiting with and talking about Tureck's terrier puppy Petenia (0:00-3:05), the conversation focused on G. W. F. Hegel's opinion of art, based on his "Three stages of absolute spirit" (3:05-5:01) and the content of art according to Hegel's conciousness of divinity (7:32-9:38). Further discussion of the concepts of art (sometimes music) included these topics: structure (of the brain, for example), perception of the onlooker's experience, interpretation, philosophy according to Hegel, T. S. Eliot, William Wordsworth, Albert Schweizer (about playing J. S. Bach), and Marxist thinking (?), and the balance of harmony in the 19th century. (10:51-45:23).
