Abstract

[In England, as we have seen in the previous chapter, Cambridge was the stronghold first of humanism and then of Ramism. The latter was particularly successful at Cambridge with the institution of its lectureship of dialectic. For instance, as Lisa Jardine has pointed out, of the nine courses required by statute in Trinity College in 1560, five were devoted to dialectic: the first lectureship taught Aristotle’s Topica, which was the basic text for the study of logic; the second explained Agricola’s De inventione dialecticae or Aristotle’s Elenchi sophistici and Analytica priora; the third taught Porphyry’s Isagoge or Aristotle’s De interpretatione; the fourth and fifth lectureship taught using Seton’s textbook.]
