Chapter Summary

The reflections of Giles of Rome on education are part of a context marked, in the thirteenth century, by the rediscovery of the Politics and Ethics of Aristotle, whose recent Latin translations propose a new approach of reality and understand the profound nature of the human being without resort to any theological conception. Still more than Thomas Aquinas and his contemporaries, Giles of Rome develops an educational project inseparable from utilitas publication. Educational reflections of Giles of Rome are primarily ethical; they are intended to convey a moral of humility perceived as man's ability to become aware of its shortcomings and limitations. In this chapter, the author offers an educational route which he conceives as a learning of the use of reason. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Aristotle; educational project; Giles of Rome; Latin translations; utilitas publication
