The quadrivium—the classical curriculum—comprises the four liberal arts of number, geometry, music, and cosmology. It was studied from antiquity to the Renaissance as a way of glimpsing the nature of reality. Geometry is number in space; music is number in time; and comology expresses number in space and time. Number, music, and geometry are metaphysical truths: life across the universe investigates them; they foreshadow the physical sciences. Quadrivium is the first volume to bring together these four subjects in many hundreds of years. Composed of six successful titles in the Wooden Books series—Sacred Geometry, Sacred Number, Harmonograph, The Elements of Music, Platonic & Archimedean Solids, and A Little Book of Coincidence—it makes ancient wisdom and its astonishing interconnectedness accessible to us today. Beautifully produced in six different colors of ink, Quadrivium will appeal to anyone interested in mathematics, music, astronomy, and how the universe works.

In this age of accountability, the future success of our educational system in the United States may well be achieved by embracing the "classical" methodology of our past. Dr. Hart provides a brief summation of classical education, its history, and how its implementation increases academic achievement. Two models of classical education that have had a significant effect on the reemergence of classical schools across this country-Mortimer Adler's Paideia Proposal and the Trivium as espoused by Dorothy L. Sayers in her essay "The Lost Tools of Learning"-are reviewed. To understand Adler's and Sayers' approaches to classical education, Dr. Hart provides a summation of the writings of the key philosophers and teachers who greatly impacted the development of classical education since the Hellenistic Age. Hart also shows how the recent philosophy of pragmatism, embraced by John Dewey, so directly impacted the decline of classical education during the past century. Ultimately however, Hart's book informs us of the reemergence of classical education in hundreds of schools across our nation that are raising achievement by providing the basis for a liberal arts education.

In the ancient scholarly curriculum, grammar formed part of the Trivium, with its sister sciences of logic and rhetoric. Logic asks: When is a sentence true? Rhetoric asks: Which is the right sentence? Grammar purely asks: When is a sentence correct? In Grammar, Rachel Grenon defines the rules governing the construction of words, phrases, sentences, and extended text or speech. Beginning with the rules behind ancient languages such as Sanskrit and Greek, she then focuses on how the rules of English have developed-from nouns and pronouns, verbs and adverbs, to tenses, the passive voice, questions, imperatives, and much more. With diagrams, engravings, and witty cartoon illustrations, this original take on a classic subject is essential for anyone interested in language.

The Metalogicon

Written in 1159 and addressed to Thomas Becket, John of Salisbury's The Metalogicon presents -- and defends -- a thorough study of the liberal arts of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. The very name "Metalogicon", a coinage by the author, brings together the Greek meta (on behalf of) and logicon (logic or logical studies). Thus, in naming his text, he also explained it. With this lucid treatise on education, John of Salisbury urges a thorough grounding in the arts of words (oral and written) and reasoning, as these topics are addressed in grammar and logic. Written more than nine hundred years ago, The Metalogicon still possesses an invigorating originality that invites readers to refresh themselves at the sources of Western learning.

Teaching the Trivium by Laurie and Harvey Bluedorn maintains that the classical style of education is designed to serve Christians well because it was the original model of education that God had in mind for his people to progress from knowledge, to understanding, to wisdom. This is a great book, for two reasons: 1. it takes the whole of the classical method and roots it soundly in the Bible, and 2. it lays out many options for a classical, biblically based course of study that are not overwhelming to the average family. Even if you never intended to use this approach, the many insights into education are well worth the price of the book.

Masters of language can turn unassuming words into phrases that are beautiful, effective, and memorable. What are the secrets of this alchemy? Part of the answer lies in rhetorical figures: practical ways of applying great aesthetic principles -- repetition and variety, suspense and relief, concealment and surprise -- to a simple sentence or paragraph. Farnsworth's Classical English Rhetoricrecovers this knowledge for our times. It amounts to a tutorial on eloquence conducted by Churchill and Lincoln, Dickens and Melville, Burke and Paine, and more than a hundred others. The book organizes a vast range of examples from those sources into eighteen chapters that illustrate and analyze the most valuable rhetorical devices with unprecedented clarity. The result is an indispensable source of pleasure and instruction for all lovers of English.

2014 Reprint of 1948 Third Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The "Trivium" is a systematic method of critical thinking for deriving certainty from any information coming into the mind via the five senses. In medieval universities, the Trivium comprised the three subjects that were taught first, specifically in this order: grammar, logic and rhetoric. While most textbooks are lucky to enjoy a shelf life of three or four years, "The Trivium" followed a different path. In 1947, when Columbia University Press published her celebrated dissertation, "Shakespeare's Use of the Arts of Language," Sister Miriam Joseph's previously published textbook gained wider notice. And since then, The "Trivium" continues to be rediscovered by new generations of writers and teachers. This dense, authoritative textbook takes all of Aristotle's teachings on logic, grammar, and rhetoric, and some of his teachings of poetics, adds some of the insights gained in the subsequent centuries, and presents it in a well-organized flow.
