Abstract

In chapters 22–25 of the treatise On music attributed to Plutarch, the author discusses multiple evidence (including Plato, Aristotle and other ‘Pythagorizing’ sources) on the marvelous symmetry of the musical harmonia and on its correspondence with the harmonic order of the universe. After having demonstrated the coherent assemblage of materials displayed by these chapters, some hypotheses on their common source will be discussed. [Eleonora Rocconi]
