In this systematic learning process, grammar is the foundation for logic. Then together, grammar and logic become the foundation for rhetoric.

These days, many mainstream talking heads of all stripes, switch the order of the trivium steps. Sometimes this is intentionally manipulative, often leading with the Why.

Putting your logic before your grammar means coming to conclusions before establishing your basic definitions, facts, and evidence of those conclusions' foundational components.

Applied systematically, the trivium method acts like a virus scan for your brain to work through useful information and conclusions to plans of action with more predictable results.

By using these steps in order while figuring out anything new, you will more reliably determine how (rhetoric, actions) to achieve your desired results to safely swim through life.
