Ramus, method, and the decay of dialogue : from the art of discourse to the art of reason by Walter J Ong ( Book )
38 editions published between 1955 and 2004 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Renaissance logician, philosopher, humanist, and teacher, Peter Ramus (1515-1572) is best known for his attack on Aristotelian logic, his radical pedagogical theories, and his new interpretation of the cannons of rhetoric. His work, published in Latin and translated into many languages, has influenced the study of Renaissance literature, rhetoric, education, logic, and - more recently - media studies." "A canonical text for enthusiasts of media, Renaissance literature, and intellectual history, Ramus, Method, and the Decay of Dialogue is a review of the history of Ramist scholarship and his quarrels with Aristotle. A key influence on Marshall McLuhan, with whom Ong enjoys the status of honorary guru among technophiles, this study remains the most detailed account of Ramus's method ever published."--BOOK JACKET
