Summary

The history of scholarship on Aristoxenus’ Pythagorean Precepts is mainly one of neglect. There has never been a comprehensive book-length treatment of them published in any language. Less than thirty pages of published scholarship in total were devoted to analyzing them in the twentieth century. This is in some ways surprising. Aristoxenus has always been a controversial character, but he was regarded as one of the most important sources for Pythagoreanism by Rohde (1871–2 = 1901) and Zeller (1919) in the later nineteenth century.
