An essay on the resemblance theory, a view of musical expressiveness that sees music as expressive of emotion when resembling human expressive behaviour is presented. Peter Kivy, who developed an account of the music features causing listeners to hear it as expressive of emotion, does not believe that the resemblance theory accounts for all of musical expression. The author argues that it was unwise to abandon the resemblance theory as new and compelling evidence supports it.
