  Scholasticism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scholastic philosophy usually combined logic, metaphysics and semantics into one discipline, and is generally recognized to have developed our understanding of logic significantly when compared to the older sources.
In the high scholastic period of 1250 - 1350 scholasticism moved beyond theology into the philosophy of nature, psychology, epistemology and philosophy of science.
During the catholic scholastic revival in the late 1800s and early 1900s the scholastics were repopularized, but with a somewhat narrow focus on certain scholastics and their respective schools of thought, notably Thomas Aquinas.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Scholasticism
The Scholastic manner of treating the problems of philosophy and theology is apparent from a glance at the body of literature which the Schoolmen produced.
The Scholastics of the thirteenth century frankly adopted the Aristotelean definition of the soul as the principle of life, not of thought merely.
Scholastic metaphysics added to the Aristotelean system a full discussion of the nature of personality, restated in more definite terms the traditional arguments for the existence of God, and developed the doctrine of the providential government of the universe.

 scholasticism. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
For the greatest of the scholastics, this meant the use of reason to deepen the understanding of what is believed on faith and ultimately to give a rational content to faith.
It was in the universities that the two traditional forms of scholastic literature were developed: the question (a thesis that is posed and defended against objections) and the commentary.
But the break between medieval philosophy and Renaissance thought was mainly in the area of metaphysics; scholastic tradition and methods continued to be followed in politics and law—in canon law, civil law, and common law and, later, in the development of international law.

 Scholastic is fund manager's favorite stock - Feb. 19, 2002
The publisher of the first four books in the series, Scholastic, is flying high, but there's more to come beyond its possible deal for the fifth book, said Charles Glovsky, manager of the Independence Small Cap fund.
There is little direct competition in the club and fair businesses.  The biggest threat to Scholastic's outlook is failure to execute in terms of continuing to grow revenues from those sources, obtaining attractive new titles, deriving savings from expense containment, and, again, getting the publishing rights to additional Harry Potter novels.
In the year ended May 31, 2001, Scholastic earned $2.24 per share.  In the current and next fiscal years, we expect earnings of $2.50 and $3.00, respectively.  With the stock now selling at around $50, we believe we'll see a much higher price over the next 12 to 18 months.

 Protestant Scholasticism
Aristotle, for example, upon whom the medieval scholastics had relied, continued to be taught by Protestants: Melanchthon at Wittenberg, Peter Martyr Vermigli at Oxford, Jerome Zanchi at Strassburg, Conrad Gesner at Zurich, Theodore Beza at Geneva.
The Protestant use of scholastic techniques and attitudes consequently kept them in the mainstream of early modern philosophy, which, though it moved away from deductive logic, maintained confidence in reason.
Protestant theologians, especially the Calvinists, could use scholastic methods to inquire beyond biblical texts into the intricacies and implications of Protestant theology, especially when election and the will of God were considered.

 Jacques Maritain Center: Revival 2
The Revival of Scholastic Philosophy in the Nineteenth Century
This view, perfectly conclusive for the adherents of nominalism, loses its value if, with the great Scholastic masters, we admit the validity of the universal; if we regard the word man as meaning, not simply John, Peter and Thomas, but a universal essence common to all possible men.
The error of the nominalists lies in the confusing the denotation of a term with its conotation; and, if Mill tries to clear himself from such an accusation, it is on account of an inconsistency which runs through the whole of his System of Logic, and appears as a continual puzzle to the uninitiated reader.

So I looked in the manual, which was incorrectly formatted for the Mac (contained gremlin characters at the start of every line), and this issue was not even mentioned in the trouble-shooting section, nor was the requirement of a 640x480 monitor mentioned anywhere.
So I called Scholastic, and went around twice with their automated product-selection menu, which insisted that it has no products for the Mac starting with "DRA" or "LEA".
Clearly the folks at Scholastic did not test their software on a variety of machines, and despite the simultaneous Mac/Win release, are not serious about supporting their Mac customers.
