In this paper I propose an analysis of the classification of the sciences developed by S. Bonaventure in the De reductione artium ad theologiam. The first part introduces the basic topics of the encyclopaedic issue, showing its theoretical and sociocultural importance. In the second part I focus on the specific reduction problem in the Bonaventure’s essay. The guiding principle of this analysis is the belief that the classics are classics not because they belong to a more or less distant past but because they can tell us something about the present and they can teach us something for the future. In this respect, with the view to the encyclopaedic issue, the Bonaventure’s work will prove to be a real hymn to the human encyclopaedia.
