Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 380, a 15th century copy of the ancient Greek critique of learning by Empiricus Sextus, divided into the disciplines of grammar, rhetoric, geometry, arithmetic, astrology, music, logic, physics, and ethics. A short work titled Dialexeis or Dissoi logoi, which was often attributed to Empiricus and included in manuscripts of his work, is at the end of the volume. It was written in Italy, probably Ferrara, Florence, or Rome, by Isidore of Kiev, during Isidore's participation in the Council of Florence, 1438-1445.
