Abstract

Aristotle’s Poetics is unparalleled as one of the most translated texts in history. The Greek philosopher’s cross-cultural influence can be traced through the evolution of countless practices over time, ranging from Late Antiquity to philosophy of mind to political theory. Yet far beyond the work’s commonly-known political, dramatic and philosophical influences, the components of Poetics were essential in shaping the distinctive style of sixteenth century renaissance music, a medium whose aim of reviving the ethical power of the ancient past has helped Aristotelian concepts survive through the centuries.

The Pursuit of Pleasure: An Intersection between Aristotle's Poetics and Sixteenth Century Renaissance Music

Aristotle’s Poetics is unparalleled as one of the most translated texts in history. The Greek philosopher’s cross-cultural influence can be traced through the evolution of countless practices over time, ranging from Late Antiquity to philosophy of mind to political theory. Yet far beyond the work’s commonly-known political, dramatic and philosophical influences, the components of Poetics were essential in shaping the distinctive style of sixteenth century renaissance music, a medium whose aim of reviving the ethical power of the ancient past has helped Aristotelian concepts survive through the centuries.
