The Classical Education Movement Historical

Seal of the University of Pennsylvania from 1894 depicting the trivium as a stack of books providing the foundation for a quadrivium of mathematics, natural philosophy (empirical science), astronomy, and theology.
The Classical education movement advocates a form of education based in the traditions of Western culture, with a particular focus on education as understood and taught in the Middle Ages.
The term "classical education" has been used in English for several centuries, with each era modifying the definition and adding its own selection of topics. By the end of the 18th century, in addition to the trivium and quadrivium of the Middle Ages, the definition of a classical education embraced study of literature, poetry, drama, philosophy, history, art, and languages.[1] In the 20th and 21st centuries it is used to refer to a broad-based study of the liberal arts and sciences, as opposed to a practical or pre-professional program.[1]


The subject of music within the quadrivium was originally the classical subject of harmonics, in particular the study of the proportions between the music intervals created by the division of a monochord. A relationship to music as actually practised was not part of this study, but the framework of classical harmonics would substantially influence the content and structure of music theory as practised both in European and Islamic cultures.
By education, the divine essence of man may be unfolded, brought out, lifted into consciousness byFriedrich Fröbel
Sometimes one has to look behind a statement in order to see the depth that might be revealed and what the comment might be reacting too? So of course, I throw it out there,  to see what comes back.

Extra-Dimensions....What is Heaven Like?

Imagine a world with no Anti-Matter? No equatorial axiomatic expressions of the universe?:) Just plain, Dark and Dead.:) Walking over a bridge in visualization is escapism....while there exists another side to the question?

What I find as ultimately interesting is that is for each having and maintaining a true dialogue is the most critical requirement of science and philosophy more generally. So although they had opposing views about the relevancy of the foundations in seeking the truth, each agreed about one key aspect of its methodology, which is not an axiom, yet required as a prerequisite before any can be postulated or denied there being necessity to do so.(Bold added for emphasis by me)
So while waiting for a is understood that such "a schematic" was realized by this author for what may be expletive for that which reads,"which is not an axiom" as to reveal some bias by this author of discoveries about "deep play thinking." About subjects at hand, and the journey one might want to take.

It was found to reveal the "same geometrical tendencies" that are inherent in the quest for such truth's as to the wording of,  writing and visualizing to advance, reveals a topographical relationship with the world around us. Why if it can exist in such equatorial description cannot such a dialogue exist within self? Where did it begin?;)

This dance of sorts of leading to self evident questions and answers, that lead to any apprehension of position for which too,  rebuttal the world, and paint a picture there of. Off handed statements do reveal positions.
