Nolan, Simon (2009) Teaching and Learning in the Summa theologiae of Gerard of Bologna (d. 1317). Maynooth Philosophical Papers, Issue 5 (2008) . pp. 35-41.
Gerard of Bologna (d. 1317) was the first Carmelite master at the University of Paris in the Middle Ages. In Quaestio 6, article 1 of his incomplete Summa theologiae, Gerard discusses the issue of teaching and learning. During the course of his discussion he summarises his understanding of the process of cognition in human beings and he considers God, angels and human beings as teachers. Gerard insists on the necessity of the teacher-student relationship in the handing on of human knowledge.
