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.
Quadrants (1) critical and integrative thinking, and (2) study of the polymaths will be discussed.
Quadrants (3) the tapestry of knowledge, and (4) communication will be discussed.
