Greeting from Francis Wolff
Francis Wolff sends a greeting!
Francis Wolff solves all your doubts: If you like the harp, you have to come to the Harp Festival Tierra 47. If you do not like the harp, you have to come to the Harp Festival Tierra 47
“As a child”, Wolff says, “he learned Theory of Music in manuals divided into two: a green book for questions and a red one for answers. The first question in the first course was: ‘What is music?’ And in the red notebook you could read the answer: ‘The art of sounds.’ I was completely amazed, barely eight years old, by this definition. I do not know if it was my initiation to Musical Theory, but it was, I believe, my initiation to Philosophy.”
Francis Wolff currently teaches Philosophy at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, as well as at the Universities of Paris-Nanterre, Paris-Sorbonne, Reims and Sao Paulo (Brazil).
Specialist in Ancient Philosophy, particularly in Aristotle, he has worked as much on Metaphysics as Politics. His book Aristote et la Politique (Paris, PUF, 1st ed. 1991- 4th ed. 2008) is considered an important reference work in its field. As well as examining the subject of happiness and friendship in Aristotle, Wolff is also a great connoisseur of Plato and the Epicureans.
Member of the Léon Robin Center and the Research Center of ancient thought.
