In the second century, Nicomachus of Gerasa, Numenius of Apamea, and Theon of Smyrna all wrote mathematical and philosophical texts laced with Pythagorean lore. The influence is seen in Philo of Alexandria (fl. early first c. CE), a Jewish writer and political leader who was called a Pythagorean in antiquity, in part because he used allegorical.

Abstract. Nicomachus of Gerasa’s Arithmetical introduction, a late antique arithmeticwork that was highly appreciated for its educational value throughout Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, is traditionally characterized by historians of mathematics as theoretical, without any practical orientation at this chapter, it is argued that the textual analysis of the work suggests : Athanasia Megremi, Jean Christianidis.

Pythagoras of Samos. From the Introduction to Arithmetic, by Nicomachus of Gerasa (ca. AD), trans. by Martin Luther D'Ooge, Macmillan, (pp. Book I. Chapter I. The ancients, who under the leadership of Pythagoras first made science systematic, defined philosophy as the love of wisdom.

Mathematics - Mathematics - Number theory: Although Euclid handed down a precedent for number theory in Books VII–IX of the Elements, later writers made no further effort to extend the field of theoretical arithmetic in his demonstrative manner.

Beginning with Nicomachus of Gerasa (flourished c. ce), several writers produced collections expounding a much simpler form of number theory.

A story of Pythagoras, told by Nicomachus of Gerasa (c. AD c. ) and repeated by Iamblichus (c. AD c. ), recounts how Pythagoras discovered the mathematics of music. Hearing the harmonious sounds of hammers on anvils in a smithy, Pythagoras weighed the hammers and found that their weights were in simple integer proportions.

Pythagoreanism originated in the 6th century BC, based on the teachings and beliefs held by Pythagoras and his followers, the Pythagoreans. Pythagoras established the first Pythagorean community in Crotone, Pythagorean communities spread throughout Magna Graecia. Pythagoras’ death and disputes about his teachings led to the development of two philosophical traditions within.

Clearly Nicomachus had achieved fame for his arithmetical work. Nicomachus was a Pythagorean. This is obvious from his writings on numbers and music, but we are also told this by Porphyry who says that he was one of the leading members of the Pythagoreans School.

The present book shows that the domains of mathematics and the Divine, which may seem so radically separated, have throughout history and across cultures, proved to be intimately related.

Religious activities such as the building of temples, the telling of ritual stories or the drawing of enigmatic figures all display distinct mathematical.

Mathematics and the Divine seem to correspond to diametrically opposed tendencies of the human mind. Nicomachus of Gerasa.

Nicomachus, or Nicomachus of Gerasa, (Greek: Νικόμαχος; c. 60 – c. CE) was an important ancient mathematician best known for his works Introduction to Arithmetic and Manual of Harmonics in Greek. He was born in Gerasa, in the Roman province of Syria (now Jerash, Jordan), and was strongly influenced by Aristotle.

Systematic works covering a wide province of philosophy, or even aiming at an exhaustive treatment of all its provinces, could take the form of a series of expositions or commentaries on the works of Aristotle, or organize the accumulated intellectual experience of the past and the original views of the author with great independence at at many.

The work of Nicomachus was translated into Latin by Boethius (died c. AD) and this arithmetical primer supplied the Middle Ages with the sole text book available on the subject in the schools. The early philosophers placed much emphasis on mathematics in their view of the universe. Full text of "Iamblichus - The theology of arithmetic" See other formats.

He translated works of philosophy and mathematics from Greek to Latin and contributed to monastic education's famous quadrivium of arithmetic, geometry, astronomy, and music theory. Boethius’s work in arithmetic was greatly influenced by the Pythagorean arithmetic of Nicomachus of Gerasa (fl.

Their ideas about number, however, were still largely drawn from Boethius's rendering of Nicomachus of Gerasa's Introduction to arithmetic in the Arithmetica and there had been little progress in attempting to reconcile Boethius's teaching on the theory of number with the rather different assumptions that underlie the methods of practical.

Ancient Greek mathematics was developed from the 7th century BC to the 4th century AD by Greek speaking peoples along the shores of the Eastern Mediterranean. The period following Alexander the Great is sometimes referred to as Hellenistic mathematics.

The word "mathematics" itself derives from the ancient Greek μάθημα (mathema), meaning "subject of instruction". Domninus of Larissa(b.

It contains both philosophical prose and basic mathematical ideas. Nicomachus refers to Plato quite often, and writes that philosophy can only be possible if one knows enough about mathematics.According to the Brethren, this doctrine derived from the teaching of Pythagoras, “who was a monotheistic sage who hailed from Harran,” and his first-century disciple, Nicomachus of Gerasa, who is sometimes confused with Aristotle's son in Arabic sources.
