A book about rhythm 

I just finished reading this:

https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/groove-9781441166272/

It’s the book of the guy’s philosophy PhD thesis, so it goes in to some academic technicalities. But it bears on the idea (which I saw on another thread) that ‘music theory’ means harmonic analysis and rhythm is just something you gotta feel but can’t talk about except crudely. This book explains why that isn’t true while simultaneously making sense of why someone might think it.

TL;DR: drummer reads Merleau Ponty

Thanks! It is a PhD dissertation with a slightly different title from 2007 at Columbia U. Unfortunately the dissertation is not yet available (Columbia has only managed to digitize 2011 and later so far ), but via ProQuest one can see the Table of Contents and the entire introduction (of the dissertation, not the book), here: https://search.proquest.com/openview/212d5204716447a50d5d85118d948674/1 in case anyone is interested to sample.
