Review of Metaphysics 59 (3):672-673 (2006)

The sources for this volume are the unpublished papers of Reid contained in the Birkwood Colletion. As the title of the volume indicates, Reid’s teaching as a Regent included Logic, Rhetoric, and the Fine Arts. The regenting system assigned cadres of students to a specific teacher who would pace them through the entire curriculum of study. Broadie cites Reid’s own defenses of this system and the important educational and civic aims achieved by it, at the relatively slight cost of unavoidable superficiality. Today’s academic world might benefit from a consideration of current practices as informed by Reid’s ideas on just this point.
