In the realm of early modern educational thought, treatises generally known as institutiones have a central role in elaborating on the background of Renaissance pedagogy and in redesigning the pedagogical aims and priorities of a changing ruling class. In this framework, Giovan Francesco Spinola’s Instruttione famigliare (‘Family Education’, written around 1650) represents both a turning point and a variant profoundly connected with the needs and circumstances of the places in which the work was conceived. On the local side, the book gives evidence of a peculiar, one-of-a-kind ‘Genoese pedagogy’ and carries the mark of the uncertainty and troubles of a declining republic still very proud of its manners and morals. From a more general perspective, the treatise stands as the most convincing testimony of the progressive dismissal of the educational model based on Humanism and the liberal arts.

Abstract

In the realm of early modern educational thought, treatises generally known as institutiones have a central role in elaborating on the background of Renaissance pedagogy and in redesigning the pedagogical aims and priorities of a changing ruling class. In this framework, Giovan Francesco Spinola’s Instruttione famigliare (‘Family Education’, written around 1650) represents both a turning point and a variant profoundly connected with the needs and circumstances of the places in which the work was conceived. On the local side, the book gives evidence of a peculiar, one-of-a-kind ‘Genoese pedagogy’ and carries the mark of the uncertainty and troubles of a declining republic still very proud of its manners and morals. From a more general perspective, the treatise stands as the most convincing testimony of the progressive dismissal of the educational model based on Humanism and the liberal arts.
