Congrats to Andrew Hicks on new book "Composing the World"

January 13, 2017

Andrew Hicks is an Assistant Professor of Music and Medieval Studies at Cornell University, a member of the graduate fields of Classics and Near Eastern Studies, and a faculty affiliate in Religious Studies. His scholarship clusters around the intellectual history of musical thought from a cross-disciplinary perspective that embraces philosophical, cosmological, scientific, and grammatical discourse in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and spans the linguistic and cultural spheres of Latin, Greek, Persian, and Arabic.

We congratulate him on the recent publication of his new book, "Composing the World: Harmony in the Medieval Platonic Cosmos," by Oxford University Press. To order the book, or for a complete description, please go to the publishers website:
