Cage did not read Western philosophy. He did not immerse himself in and wrestle with bis texts. Apart from books from Eastern authors, he was influenced by contemporary American thinkers such as Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller. The only traditional European author he cites as having influenced him is Meister Eckhart. Nevertheless, Cage's innovations in music and aesthetics can be seen in connection with a renunciation of finality and technique; so a comparison with Spinoza's ateleology and other spinozistic themes (corporeal sphere's autonomy, intuitive knowledge, de rebus singularibus learning) can be useful to link the American composer against the main Western philosophical tradition.
