Abstract

A student of Nebrija (whom he described as “nostrae tempestatis doctissimus”), Hernando Alonso de Herrera taught Rhetoric and Grammar at the Universities of Alcalá de Henares (between 1509 and 1512) and Salamanca (after 1513). He was the author of several treatises on grammar, in which he also disputed aspects of Nebrija’s linguistic methodology. Herrera upheld the humanist against the scholastic approach to philosophy.
