Music molds the soul of a nation…

The second level of philosophy does not feel the constraint of reason or come under the binding strictures of argument. It finds its refuge in the imagination and feeling. Ways of thinking at this level may enter one’s consciousness via a play or a novel, or touch the imagination through visual media, making belief-altering impact by capturing the emotions. It is immensely effective, and literature, drama, and music have historically molded the soul of a nation far more than solid reasoning has. Level two is existential and fallaciously claims that it need not bow to the laws of logic.

Ravi Zacharias, from Is Your Church Ready?, p. 32
