Kontaminacje leksykalne. Struktura – sens – pragmatyka (na materiale języka rosyjskich i polskich mediów)
MetadataShow full item record
This book consists of two parts, of which the second and main one comprises a Polish translation of the Harmonics by Aristoxenus of Tarentum, a disciple of Aristotle and the first scholar to treat music as a subject of scientific research. The technical terms he had established and the conclusions he had reached formed the basic theory of music throughout Greco-Roman antiquity, developed – but never contradicted – by subsequent researchers in the field. The “Harmonics” is the only extant work by Aristoxenus (apart from several pages from another treatise, the “Rhythmics”). Although it does not survive in its entirety, the state of preservation is sufficient to permit some conclusions on the author’s method and style. The Polish text of the “Harmonics” is provided with explanatory footnotes and preceded by an introduction. The purpose of both is didactic, aiming to supply basic information not only on the author and the work, but mainly on the subject matter – especially on those of its aspects that were obvious to Aristoxenus himself and to his intended audience, but which are far less clear to a modern reader unfamiliar with the quite specific structure of ancient Greek music. Some comments are also made regarding the author’s scientific methodology as well as his attitude towards music and towards researchers contemporaneous to him.
