520    The ancient science of harmonics investigates the 
       arrangements of pitched sounds which form the basis of 
       musical melody, and the principles which govern them. It 
       was the most important branch of Greek musical theory, 
       studied by philosophers, mathematicians and astronomers as
       well as by musical specialists. This 2007 book examines 
       its development during the period when its central ideas 
       and rival schools of thought were established, laying the 
       foundations for the speculations of later antiquity, the 
       Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It concentrates 
       particularly on the theorists' methods and purposes and 
       the controversies that their various approaches to the 
       subject provoked. It also seeks to locate the discipline 
       within the broader cultural environment of the period; and
       it investigates, sometimes with surprising results, the 
       ways in which the theorists' work draws on and in some 
       cases influences that of philosophers and other
