Abstract:

In the preface to his Metaphysicum Introductorium (1504), which Charles de Bovelles (1479–1567) addresses to "All students of good letters," he says that striving for good letters involves knowing first principals, but that knowing them requires knowing other disciplines: first the mechanical and liberal arts (grammar, rhetoric, and dialectic) that relate to the body, then advancing to mathematics and on to music and geometry that depend on mathematics. Only at this point are students ready to study natural philosophy. Finally, one arrives at metaphysics — the most general type of knowledge and so a unity that transcends all particular kids of knowledge and reconciles them within itself. Thus, "The happiness of man must consist in the possession of wisdom and metaphysics" (Metaphysicum Introductorium, ch.VII.b.ii.v). This paper will consider how this proposed sequence is exemplified through Bovelles's personal pursuit of wisdom.
