在音乐理论上解决旋宫问题的必然,是发明十二平均律,这位发明者就是被李约瑟誉为“东方文艺复兴式人物”〔1〕的朱载。关于十二平均律,朱载称其为新法密率。这项发明,是前代乐律理论积极成果的集大成,也是我国古代音乐思想和科学技术完满统一的结晶。有鉴于此,本文以朱氏新法密率为研究中心,细析其科学发明中逻辑和历史的统一之科学方法。进而,探寻其新法密率的丰富内涵及其人文意蕴。The contrivance of twelve-tone equal temperament is the inevitability of the resolution to the Huang-chung problem in musical theory. The contriver is Chu tsai-Yü, honored by Joseph Needham as “a man of the Renaissance”. The twelve-tone equal temperament, called as Hsin Fa Mi Li by Chu tsai-Yü is a positive harmony in temperament of the forepart generalization. He blended the theory and practice of metrology, temperament and so on, which incarnates the ancient musical thoughts with science and technology. Accordingly, the paper centers on the invention and gives a careful analysis on the scientific methods about the unification of logic and history. Then, explore its abundant content and humanistic connotation.
