Chapter Summary

From the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth centuries, the educational and pedagogical theories of the French humanist Petrus Ramus dominated secondary school and university education in Northern Europe, in England, Holland, and, especially, Germany. This chapter attempts to establish the nature and extent of Ramhals Ramism, beginning with his abridgement of Wendelin in the Logic and to showthe traces of Ramism in some of his otherworks. Ramuss conception of logic, or dialecticboth terms were used interchangeably in the scholastic traditionwas based on the humanist logic of his predecessors, especially Rodolphus Agricola, and Johannes Sturm, Ramus teacher, whose lectures on Agricola at Paris were an acknowledged influence. Ramuss two key logical/methodological operations are analysis and genesis (synthesis). One of the enthusiasts for the Ways of Reason was Rabbi Mordecai Goldstein, the founder and dean of the Diaspora Yeshiva, an educational institution for newly observant Jews.
