The harmonies of the soul pf the platonic world
Keywords:Platonic world, Pitagoric School, art-music.
lt is maintained that the Platonic world is not the world of ideas, but the world of sensibility. To prove it, the author comes back, historically and philosophically, to the Pitagoreans, though he does not share totally their believing that only numbers can solve the questions about the world. By his part, searching for an aesthetics of sublime where sensibility is highly praised, he propases a musical seale. This sensibility would affirm a new rationalism against the logical qualities of discourse. As a consequence ofall this, artists are jolly important, as important as it is to define the nature of artistic phenomenon. So, music is invoked to foster understanding Plato, and the art of the Daemon is but that of a matemathician-musician.
