Assignment 3 – Manuscript

Eisenstein, Trithemius, and Plato all discuss the relation of the written word to education. How do the views of Eisenstein differ from those of either Plato in Phaedrus or Trithemius in In Praise of Scribes. Give examples and say who you think has the better argument. (If you think Adrian Johns’s comments throw light on these questions, do, of course, feel free to use them.)
