Gabriel Harvey's Ciceronianus and the Place of Peter Ramus' Dialecticae libri duo in the Curriculum

  • John Charles Adams (a1)


A Useful Way of Establishing the historical significance of any perceptive text in the discourse arts is to explain the connection between the values embedded in its illustrative materials and the social and political interests it may have served and advanced among the persons who used it. Illustrative materials evidence and communicate lines of thought—substance as well as formal dimensions of technical interest to students of the history of the discourse arts.
