Sayers, Dorothy L: The Lost Tools of Learning, v.1, 29 August 2008.
Dorothy L. Sayers (1893–1957)
The Lost Tools of Learning
Paper read at a Vacation Course in Education, Oxford 1947. First published in 1948.
A lecture, in which Miss Sayers argues for a return to the mediaeval system of education. Currently, children are taught ‘subjects’ and learn a lot of facts by rote. However, they are not taught how to think. A return to the Trivium—the ‘three ways’—rhetoric, dialectic and grammar—would remedy this defect.
