Description: DePauw University in Association with Project Theophrastus will be hosting a conference on the Peripatetic philosopher Aristoxenus of Tarentum, September 10-12, 2009. Aristoxenus wrote over 400 books and hoped to be named the head of the Peripatos upon Aristotle’s death. Leo, in his great work on ancient biography, called Aristoxenus “the founder of literary biography.” He wrote lives of Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato and Archytas. He preserves one of the famous accounts of Plato’s lecture on The Good and is a crucial source for reconstructing ancient Pythagoreanism. He developed a theory of the soul as a haromony.He was the most famous music theorist in antiquity, writing central works on music theory, such as the Rhythmics and the Elementa Harmonica. Papers on any aspect of Aristoxenus’ work are welcome. The conference will comprise presentations by invited specialists on Aristoxenus and the Peripatetic School as well as papers selected from proposals submitted to a conference panel that will judge these on an anonymous basis. Abstracts (1-2 pages) for invited papers are due October 1, 2008 and abstracts for proposed papers are due December 1, 2008. Notification of accepted proposals will be given by February 1, 2009. Final papers are due June 1, 2009.
