Abstract

After a general introduction concerning the role of music in education and its ethical weight in ancient Greek tought, this study is largely focused on paragraphs 32-36 of pseudo-Plutarchean De musica. The thesis is that Aristoxenus would not be the direct source of this section. The tradition here seems much more complicated, and the source could be defined aristoxenic only in part, since the whole section suggests influences from differently oriented models. The idea is put forward of more than one author, with the prominence of a basically technical (Hellenistic?) source, mainly interested on aesthetical and practical sides of music rather than on its ethical effects.
