In medieval times, the Seven Liberal Arts offered a canonical way of depicting the realms of higher learning. The Liberal Arts were divided into the Trivium ("the three roads") and the Quadrivium ("the four roads"). The Trivium consisted of: Grammar Rhetoric Logic The Quadrivium consisted of: Arithmetic -- Number in itself Geometry -- Number in space Music, Harmonics, or Tuning Theory -- Number in time Astronomy or Cosmology -- Number in space and time The medival Quadrivium thus followed the division of mathematics made by the Pythagoreans. Recently, mathematics has been defined as "the study of patterns in space and time," which very much resembles the ancient Pythagorean understanding of mathematics.

We, at Wilvon, use this notion of Liberal Arts and the concepts belonging to it. But in slightly different ways, like with almost everything. Since we have our own opinions about sciences and also because we adjust the several insights of science to our own business and customer demands. Which is why we are mainly interested in what was called the "Trivium" in former times. What is very interesting to us, also because of philosophical reasons and practicality, are the textual driven insights belonging to the Liberal Arts. Like the insights of for instance Rhetoric. About Rhetoric more will be mentioned on this site in short notice.

Aristotle wrote some important and influential discourse about Rhetoric long ago. Besides a reflection on the art of Rhetoric, this work also offers some very interesting philosophical insights for past and current times. Like his notion of natural and written laws. A lot of scientists still are reflecting on both Rhetoric and insights Aristotle already had at his times in current ages. Both the art and the science of Rhetoric have evolved, and discourses continue. We are convinced that a thorough understanding of texts is crucial for understanding the worlds surrounding us. This will improve diagnosis of events in impressive ways. Which is why we at Wilvon Organization & Developments have great respect and interest in both Rhetorics and Semiotics.
