Praeceptiones dialecticae, Nicolao Gruchio Rotomagensi authore. Disputatio eiusdem, quid de nomine dialectices & logices cum Aristotele sentiendum sit, & quò singuli libri Organi Aristotelis pertineant.
Grouchy’s abstract of his lectures on logic and Aristotelian dialectic. Grouchy spent 12 years in Bordeaux (1535-47) as professor of rhetoric at the Collège de Guyenne (the top class was called “Classe de Rhétorique”), and his book became part of the Collège’s published syllabus for the two-year course for philosophiae doctores. He also published Aristotle’s works in Joachim Perion’s Latin version and took a serious interest in jurisprudence. He was an important friend of George Buchanan whom (in 1547) he accompanied to Portugal as part of the scheme that John III had in mind for the reform of the College of Arts in Coimbra.
