Review by WalpoleBassman
There are few books on the Trivium available. This is quite comprehensive and includes coverage of philosophical grammar - to my knowledge the only treatement of this this subject from the scholastic viewpoint.
Review by neurodrew
I found this book hard going in many spots, but it was very satisfying to come upon explanations of terms I have heard vaguely in the past, and taken for granted from high school English classes. The idea of logical reasoning and the syllogism, the types of syllogism, and the types of errors, are directly summarized from Aristotle and medieval philosophy, but in the hands of this authress are made fresh and understandable. I am surprised to have read it through, but it will be a good reference
