The Lost Tools of Learning

“For the sole true end of education is simply this: to teach men how to learn for themselves”(D.Sayers)

septem artes liberales

The Liberal Arts were divided into the Trivium (“the three roads”) and the Quadrivium (“the four roads”).

The Trivium consisted of: Logic is the art of thinking; grammar, the art of inventing symbols and combining them to express thought; and rhetoric, the art of communicating thought from one mind to another, the adaptation of language to circumstance.

  • Grammar
  • Rhetoric
  • Logic

The Quadrivium consisted of:

  • Arithmetic — Number in itself
  • Geometry — Number in space
  • Music, Harmonics, or Tuning Theory — Number in time
  • Astronomy or Cosmology — Number in space and time
