Below, a picture of Doug working on some of the handouts that we have developed for the talk (including a booklet of the latest version of the reconstruction). "There will be handouts."


  1. I'm curious if you're using any software to keep track of variants. I made a quick survey recently and it seems there is a lot more help of this kind available than when we shuffled index cards around together in the late 90s.

  2. Dear Doug and Monte,

    First thank you for coming to Edinburgh, it was a very interesting seminar. I wrote to ask you about the german papper about music in the Protrepticus.



  3. Dear Juan,

    The paper is:

    Richter, L. Die Beziehung zwischen Theorie und Praxis der Musik im Aristotelischen Protreptikos. Hermes 88 (1960), 177-188.

  4. Sorry for the late reply, thank you very much.
