The medieval trivium consisted of logic, grammar and rhetoric. It was the ‘linguistic’ component of medieval education as opposed to the more mathematical quadrivium. Over the last thirty years or so something worth calling the New Trivium has emerged. This paper discusses what it is, and why it is important, but is for the most part concerned with a pedagogical issue: how best to teach the New Trivium to humanities students with little or no background in logic.
