De Gustibus, Hardback (October 2015)
Peter Kivy deals with a question that has never been fully addressed by philosophers of art: why do we argue about art? If I think Bach is greater than Beethoven and you think the opposite, why should it matter to either of us? He claims that we argue over taste because we think, mistakenly or not, that we are arguing over matters of fact.
Sounding Off, Hardback (June 2012)
This volume presents a selection of lively essays on philosophy of music by Peter Kivy, the leading expert on the subject. He explores the nature of musical genius; the subject of authenticity in performance and interpretation; musical representation and meaning; and the notion of music as the pure, formal structure of expressive sound.

Drawing comparisons with other art forms, this book examines the role of aesthetic features in silent reading, such as narrative structure, and the core experience of reading a novel as a story rather than a scholarly exercise.
