20th-century philosophy saw the development of a number of new philosophical schools-including logical positivism, analytic philosophy, phenomenology, existentialism, and poststructuralism. In terms of the eras of philosophy, it is usually labelled as contemporary philosophy (succeeding modern philosophy, which runs roughly from the time of René Descartes until the late 19th to early 20th centuries).

Holder's publication in 1964 entitled "A Treatise of the Natural Grounds and Principles of Harmony" explores the mathematics and physics of music during a period which led to the birth of acoustics as a new scientific discipline. As a true Renaissance man - philosopher, mathematician and musician - his education prepared him to look deeply into nature and to continue the ancient Greek tradition of philosophical enquiry. This work presents a biography of Holder, an examination of contemporary political and musical influences, and an in-depth analysis of his treatise.
