This edition had its inception in a study of the ninth-century commentaries on the seven liberal arts with especial reference to John the Scot, presented, together with four books of his commentary, as a dissertation for the doctor's degree at Yale (1933) The editor has completed the text and incorporated, with some revision, the pertinent conclusions of the earlier study into the introduction of the present edition. cf.
