The Academy for Polymathic Study guides its enquiries through four flexible pathways or Quadrants: (1) critical and integrative thinking; (2) study of the polymaths; (3) the tapestry of knowledge; and (4) communication. In order to explicate these Quadrants more fully, Edwin McCann, professor of philosophy and English, will conduct four conversational workshops over the fall and spring terms from a philosophical, historical, and practical point of view. Attendance at all four quadrants is required for Academy certification.
Quadrant 1: critical and integrative thinking and Quadrant 2: the study of the polymaths
Quadrant 1: tapestry and Quadrant 2: communication
