Philosophy was a central discipline in the early modern period. In the philosophy classroom in European universities, students learned how to reason and argue, how to think about morality and the greatest good, as well as physics and metaphysics, cosmology, biology, and the ultimate metaphysical categories of reality. Since virtually every educated European (at least the men) in the period went through this curriculum in logic, moral philosophy, natural philosophy, and metaphysics, no matter what they did afterward, understanding what was taught and how it was taught illuminates nearly every corner of literate culture in the period.
