Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Humanism in an Age of Science contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations and the acknowledgement. The first part of the book offers an introduction to the Athenaeum, to the mode and cultural context of its creation, and to its teaching faculty during the seventeenth century. Part Two of the book deals with the question of whether the Athenaeum in its didactics and activities was comparable to the Republic's other institutes of higher education; various forms of instruction are examined to answer this. Part Three contains a description of paedagogic content. The arts in the book are divided up along the boundaries maintained at the Athenaeum itself: on the one hand history and rhetoric, on the other philosophy, which included mathematics.
