Richard Stupple COR 103: Music and Culture, 10:30 February 13 th 2008 Compare the musical ideas of Plato and Aristotle including quotes from the required readings (p.6-8, 10-12), and specific musical examples in support of your statements. Although the famous Greek thinkers Plato and Aristotle are primarily regarded as two of the most significant intellectuals in human history, their influences extend far beyond simple philosophy that many people know them for. Both Plato and Aristotle contributed thought- provoking and prominent ideas to the role of music in Greek society, including the belief that music is emotionally powerful, and according to Plato, has “the power to produce good and evil results” (Perlowin 1). But while Plato first argues that the teaching and production of music should be limited to the highest ranks of society, Aristotle, his greatest student, later contends that music must be considered as a form of entertainment and recognized as one method of refining a person’s ethical values.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
