Abstract: This article reviews studies on Ramus amd Ramism published between 1987 and 2000 under the headings: Biographical and General Studies, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, Scientific, and Ramism, this latter subdivided by geographical areas. It finds that the study of Ramus is in a very healthy state, particularly through international collaboration, though there are still considerable problems for scholars in securing access to the different versions of his works. Rcunus is now presented primarily as a teacher and educationalist. The debate about Ramus's “humanism” has produced new work on his classical commentaries. Attempts have been made to achieve better definitions of Ramism.
