Peter Ramus and the Educational Reformation of the Sixteenth Century

ByFrank P. Graves

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
It is difficult to understand why Peter Ramus has been so neglected by writers upon the sixteenth century. He was probably the foremost French philosopher of his century, and he stands well among the great educators, effective orators, and lofty characters of the world’s history. He was a Christian professor and Reformed Calvinist that played a major part not only in the Reformation, but in the transformation of education in his day, and subsequently afterwards. In treatises written in English he is barely mentioned, and there scarcely exists anywhere a complete account of his achievements that includes an analysis of his works...until today. Ramus was a Calvinist genius who set the stage for great reforms, and was read widely by the contemporaries of his day. This edition has been updated and revised to add more notes and correct some errors previously found in the first edition. It is one of the only works about Ramus in the English language.
