The author offers a Review-Article on Nicolas Cook's book "The Schenker Project." The author subjects his object to a balanced analysis and provides its nonintrusive evaluations. This topic remains quite actual and, in a sense, rather slippery. The author presents the topic in a maximally objective fashion. He quotes Cook's fundamental question, "What was Schenker's problem, and in what way might his theory represent his solution to it?" To answer this and other issues, Cook sets out to place Schenker within a broader intellectual context than the musical or the philosophical. According the author's view, Cook has succeeded in doing so and the results of his efforts will definitely impact the views on theory of Schenker.
