Quadrivium: The Four Classical Liberal Arts of Number, Geometry, Music, & Cosmology
$20.00

 

The quadrivium-the classical curriculum-comprises the four liberal arts of number, geometry, music, and cosmology. It was studied from antiquity to the Renaissance as a way of glimpsing the nature of reality. Geometry is number in space; music is number in time; and comology expresses number in space and time. Number, music, and geometry are metaphysical truths: life across the universe investigates them; they foreshadow the physical sciences.

 

Quadrivium is the first volume to bring together these four subjects in many hundreds of years.
