Susan Frykberg will present the thinking outlined in Jeremy Begbie’s book Resounding Truth – Christian Wisdom in the World of Music. After presenting an overview of the contents of the book, three ideas from it will be offered for discussion: a) what Begbie calls The Great Tradition, a philosophy of music and sound that has its origins in the work of Pythagoras (C6th  BCE) but continues through to the present day; b) the harmonic series – a ‘feels like magic but is actually science’ description of some aspects of the nature of sound and listening; c) Christian Ecology and Music – a framework for thinking about music based on a gospel ecology.
Jeremy Begbie https://www.jeremybegbie.com/ is Thomas A. Langford Distinguished Research Professor of Theology at Duke Divinity School, and the McDonald Agape Director and founder of Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts.
