Meyer was a musicologist and composer known for incorporating principles of cognitive science and psychology into the study of music.
Leonard Meyer's Emotion and Meaning in Music is perhaps the first major treatise on music, written by a Western music theorist, which relies heavily on psychological insights and psychologically-based arguments in describing music. In the Preface, Meyer explicitly acknowledges his debt to Koffka one of the main proponents of Gestalt psychology. At the same time, Meyer remains grounded in the Western music theoretical tradition. He is attracted to formalist and abstract principles and acknowledges a debt to Susanne Langer the formalist aesthetic philosopher. Meyer characterizes his work as one dealing with the problem of musical meaning and the manner of musical communication.
Philosophy of music is the study of fundamental questions about the nature and value of music and our experience of it. However, unlike philosophy of science, say, the target of philosophy of music is a practice most people have a significant background in, merely as a result of being members of a musical culture. Thus, as with the central questions of metaphysics and epistemology, not only can most people quickly grasp the philosophical questions music raises, they tend to have thought about some of those questions before encountering the academic discipline itself.

By Leonard B. Composers and performers of all cultures, theorists of diverse schools and styles, aestheticians and critics of many different persuasions are all agreed that music has meaning and that this meaning is somehow communicated to both participants and listeners. This much, at least, we may take for granted. But what constitutes musical meaning and by what processes it is communicated has been the subject of numerous and often heated debates. The first main difference of opinion exists between those who insist that musical meaning lies exclusively within the context of the work itself, in the perception of the relationships set forth within the musical work of art, and those who contend that, in addition to these abstract, intellectual meanings, music also communicates meanings which in some way refer to the extramusical world of concepts, actions, emotional states, and character.
