The Harmony of the Spheres: A Sourcebook of the Pythagorean Tradition by Joscelyn Godwin
Professor of Music at Colgate University and a widely respected musicologist, Godwin traces the history of the idea, held since ancient time, that the whole cosmos, with its circling planets and stars, is in some way a musical or harmonious entity. The author shows how this concept has continued to inspire philosophers, astronomers, and mystics from antiquity to the present day.
