Logos i ethos w Pitagorejskiej wizji świata i człowieka

LOGOS AND ETHOS IN PITAGOREAN VISION OF WORLD AND MAN

The aim of the author is presentation of a direct relationship between Pitagorean vision of the world based on constant principles of harmony and the harmony in human nature. This relationship served as the basis of the ethos, which claimed that the orderly trains of sounds (harmoniai) evoked certain states in the human soul. The important moment issuing from the analyses carried out here is the claim of identity of the speculative and deductive character of music with the cosmological and ethical order, since music treated as the reflection of the laws governing the cosmos was at the same time the chief factor shaping man’s proper ethos.
