    1. Musikalisches Wochenblatt

      Dass unter solchen Umständen die vorgetragenen Quartette die denkbar vollendetste Reproduction erfuhren, dass namentlich der eine ganze Welt tiefsten Seelenlebens umfassende Inhalt der Beethoven´schen Tondichtung eine hier vorher noch nie nur annäherend durchgeistigte, bis ins kleinste Detail hinein plastische Interpretations erfuhr, wird Jeder zugeben müssen, der diesem unvergesslichen Quartetteabend beiwohnte.

    1. On this model, students are responsible for their own education, often forming communities or societies to collaborate. Professors typically worked one-on-one with students, but from time to time would be enlisted to offer a series - or 'course' - of lectures on a given topic. The lectures could be (and often were) public, and were frequently attended by other professors in the same field.

      Reminds me of @KevinCarey1 describe the original university of Bologna, in his End of College. Don’t have the quote handy (one of many cases where #OpenAccess would allow for more thoughtful discussion), but the gist of that paragraph sounds similar to what @Downes is describing here

Still, the fault is at least in part mine, and I’m sorry. :-)

      Truth = the original entities
