Schediasma?

Postby Aluarus » Thu Jul 19, 2012 3:48 pm

I am currently reading G. Wilhelm's Leibniz biography by M. A. Antognazza (a philosopher I estimate not quite because of his philosophy but because of his scholarship) and I came across a word from a physics paper he wrote called Schediasma de resistentia motii. I looked for σχεδίασμα at several greek dictionnaries but found no answer, just σχεδίας means caprice or whim.

From context of the biography, I know he wrote it hastily, so could it be that σχεδίασμα means something like impromptu in music? I mean, a very fast improvisation writen in haste or a draft or brief essay poorly structured?

οἱ μὲν γὰρ σεμνότεροι τὰς καλὰς ἐμιμοῦντο πράξεις καὶ
τὰς τῶν τοιούτων, οἱ δὲ εὐτελέστεροι τὰς τῶν φαύλων,
πρῶτον ψόγους ποιοῦντες, ὥσπερ ἕτεροι ὕμνους καὶ ἐγκώμια.
τῶν μὲν οὖν πρὸ Ὁμήρου οὐδενὸς ἔχομεν εἰπεῖν τοιοῦτον
