Abstract:

Music played a significant role in the making of modern science. In ancient Greek natural philosophy, music formed the earthly meeting place between numbers and perception. For the next two millennia, music remained a central part of higher education, united with arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy in the quadrivium. Accordingly, innovations reverberated between all these fields. This work presents the 'scientific revolution' more as a phase in the restoration and augmentation of the ancient project of musicalizing the world than a change in the basic project of natural philosophy.
