Please write up a few comments and post them by Sunday night. Here are a few suggestions. Draw up the descriptions of Harmony and/or Astronomy from the Martianus Capella reading. What sort of physical situation is Sacrobosco describing in his astronomy? How does it compare to our modern conception? Think about how Aristotelian matter theory and a NeoPlatonic cosmological architecture might lead to astrology. Macrobius’ “Commentary on the Dream of Scipio” describes a harmonic cosmos. What sort of physical situation is Macrobius describing in his astronomy? Is there some form of physics? Kinematic? Dynamic? Can you imagine any relationships between his harmonic ideas and modern concepts of forces and fields and actions at a distance like gravity and magnitism? Do the epistemological concepts of Ptolemy still make sense in the modern world?
