The Quadrivium

The four liberal arts of the Quadrivium- arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy – have been central to the Western vision of education since the time of Plato and Aristotle. They actually provide the tools of learning for many other areas of study and historically undergirded the birth of modern science. This seminar will explore how holding true to the classical character of these subjects in our teaching methods unleashes the power and wonder the ancients obviously believed them to have.
