Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A reprint of the 1961 Columbia U. Press edition of the translation (from the Latin, by Jerome Taylor) of a 12th-century treatise that demonstrates the essential unity of all areas of knowledge and their necessity for the attainment of human perfection and divine destiny.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This is the first complete translation into English of Hugh of Saint Victor's Didascalicon. Composed in the late 1130s, the Didascalicon selects and defines all of the important areas of knowledge, demonstrating that not only are these areas essentially integrated, but that in their integrity they are necessary for the attainment of human perfection and divine destiny.
