Pythagoras and His Influence on Thought and Art in Antiquity and the Middle Ages

Surviving fragments of information about Pythagoras (born ca. 570 BCE) gave rise to a growing set of legends about this famous sage and his followers, whose reputations throughout Antiquity and the Middle Ages have never before been studied systematically. This book is the first to examine the unified concepts of harmony, proportion, form, and order that were attributed to Pythagoras in the millennium after his death and the important developments to which they led in art, architecture, mathematics, astronomy, music, medicine, morals, religion, law, alchemy, and the occult sciences. In this profusely illustrated book, Christiane L. Joost-Gaugier sets out the panorama of Pythagoras's influence and that of Christian and Jewish thinkers who followed his ideas in the Greek, Roman, early Christian, and medieval worlds. In illuminating this tradition of thought, Joost-Gaugier shows how the influence of Pythagoreanism was far broader than is usually realized, and that it affected the development of ancient and medieval art and architecture from Greek and Roman temples to Gothic cathedrals.Joost-Gaugier demonstrates that Pythagoreanism—centered on the dim memory of a single person that endured for centuries and grew ever-greater—inspired a new language for artists and architects, enabling them to be "modern."

Boethius' Musiktheorie und das Quadrivium

English summary: The book shows that the neoplatonic background of Boethius' musical theory is the essential key to a comprehensive understanding of its purpose and its general composition. German description: Wahrend sich die Forschung bislang besonders der mittelalterlichen und spateren Rezeption von Boethius' Einfuhrung in die Musiktheorie gewidmet hat, nutzt Heilmann erstmals den philosophisch-systematischen Hintergrund des spatantiken Musiklehrbuches fur eine Erschlieaung des Textes. Es handelt sich um die neuplatonische Mathematikphilosophie, die der Musiktheorie zusammen mit den anderen drei mathematischen Disziplinen (Quadrivium) eine mittlere Position zwischen der wahrnehmbaren und der intelligiblen Welt zuweist. Die Einbettung der Musiktheorie in diesen Kontext ermoglicht ein praziseres Verstandnis ihrer anagogischen, d. h. zur Philosophie hochfuhrenden, Funktion und eroffnet neue Wege, sich bisher ungeklarten Fragen zu nahern, z. B. der Beschrankung der schonsten Intervalle auf funf und der Rekonstruktion des fehlenden Schlusses von De institutione musica.

What is music, and why does it move us? From Pythagoras to the present, writers have struggled to isolate the essence of "pure" or "absolute" music in ways that also account for its profound effect. In Absolute Music: The History of an Idea, Mark Evan Bonds traces the history of these efforts across more than two millennia, paying special attention to the relationship between music's essence and its qualities of form, expression, beauty, autonomy, as well as its perceived capacity to disclose philosophical truths. The core of this book focuses on the period between 1850 and 1945. Although the idea of pure music is as old as antiquity, the term "absolute music" is itself relatively recent. It was Richard Wagner who coined the term, in 1846, and he used it as a pejorative in his efforts to expose the limitations of purely instrumental music. For Wagner, music that was "absolute" was isolated, detached from the world, sterile. His contemporary, the Viennese critic Eduard Hanslick, embraced this quality of isolation as a guarantor of purity. Only pure, absolute music, he argued, could realize the highest potential of the art. Bonds reveals how and why perceptions of absolute music changed so radically between the 1850s and 1920s. When it first appeared, "absolute music" was a new term applied to old music, but by the early decades of the twentieth century, it had become-paradoxically--an old term associated with the new music of modernists like Schoenberg and Stravinsky. Bonds argues that the key developments in this shift lay not in discourse about music but rather the visual arts. The growing prestige of abstraction and form in painting at the turn of the twentieth century-line and color, as opposed to object-helped move the idea of purely abstract, absolute music to the cutting edge of musical modernism. By carefully tracing the evolution of absolute music from Ancient Greece through the Middle Ages to the twentieth-century, Bonds not only provides the first comprehensive history of this pivotal concept but also provokes new thoughts on the essence of music and how essence has been used to explain music's effect. A long awaited book from one of the most respected senior scholars in the field, Absolute Music will be essential reading for anyone interested in the history, theory, and aesthetics of music.

Ein einziger Funke würde in dieser Zeit nach dem amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg schon genügen, um New York in einem Chaos aufgehen zu lassen. Die Energie, über die Walker und Bones, die Unheimlichen, verfügen, um die Stadt in eine Hölle zu verwandeln, ist noch weit mächtiger. Wo sind die Hüter der Stadt? Und wer sind sie überhaupt? Die junge Chinesin Jin mit ihren genialen Feuerwerkskünsten und der trickreiche Kartenspieler Sam, die sich inmitten der Schreckensinvasion kennenlernen, stellen sich selbst dämonischen Akteuren entgegen. Und mysteriöse Wanderer, Sucher und Grenzgänger, tragen ihre Erfahrungen bei. An der noch unvollendeten Hängebrücke zwischen Brooklyn und New York wird sich die Zukunft des zerbrochenen Landes entscheiden. Kate Milfords Roman ist eine prickelnde Mischung aus Geschichte, Fiktion, Folklore und Fantasy. Die filigranen Bilder von Andrea Offermann zaubern genau diese Atmosphäre herauf.
