Please note: This article is in Greek. Dionysios Solomos and Pierre Hyacinthe Azais: Pierre Hyacinthe Azais, a French philosopher and musician who lived in 1766–1845, was one of the philosophers the work of whom had been studied by the Greek poet Dionysios Solomos. His fundamental principles regarding the universal equilibrium, the compensation theory which balances human happiness, the unity of the universe and its relation to the human soul, are developed in his two main works Des compensations dans les destinées humaines (1808) and Explication Universelle (1809–1812), whereas his acoustic theory is imprinted in his articles titled “Acoustique fondamentale”, which were published in Revue Musicale (1831–1832). In our paper we will discuss some of the references of the name and the philosophical theory of Azais in Solomos’ Αυτόγραφα. The theoretical discussion will be based on specific examples from Solomos’ poetical practice, where the fruitful way in which the Greek poet assimilated the theoretical work of the French philosopher, can be detected.
