FC: Aristotle: Greatest Philosopher of Antiquity | 384-322

1: Aristotle, a Greek philosopher and scientist, has found the truth through many discoveries and writings, including the creation of the scientific method which is used every day when in scientific investigations. His findings were the basis for much of the sciences and philosophies in Ancient Greece and Roman times, and are still in use today. He found the truth through logic, ethics, philosophy, sciences, and much more that in this society that we need in everyday jobs, decision making, and etc. | Aristotle was obviously quite the logical thinker (as he made some amazing discoveries in logics), and he was taught very well by Plato who was a student of Socrates. A lot of their theories had similar meaning, but the two areas Aristotle advanced were physics and astronomy the most. In his sciences, he touched base on topics of matter, movement, space, change, time, and position. | Along with so many contributions in the sciences and philosophical encounters, Aristotle had much to offer in the arts, such as poetry, music, and drama. He made observations poetry’s “first principles” and identified its genres and basic elements. In The Poetics, he identified tragedy as the most refined version of poetry along with arrogant matters versus comedy tragedies.

2: Aristotle was Plato’s most famous student in Greek history, but after the death of Plato, Aristotle studied biology while he lived in Assos. After that, he accepted the job of teaching Alexander the Great of Macedon at Mieza. Aristotle founded a school in Athens when the Macedonians subdued, and it was named the Lyceum. | I feel Aristotle truly found the truth in ethics when he wrote The Nicomachean Ethics, because in our society’s opinion, it is the best book written by Aristotle about ethics. The theme of the work was based on the Socratic question of how men should best live. Aristotle defined how Socrates turned philosophy to human questions, while Pre-Socratic philosophy had been theoretical, which made Aristotle prove that ethics was more practical than theoretical.

3: A lot of Aristotle’s writings have been lost, but many fragments of the undiscovered works have been found such as lecture notes. When historians have re-examined these findings, the philosophy of Aristotle has changed in important ways. It has been proven that Aristotle was the first to divide and subdivide the areas of education and classification, however. On the website, “FunTeaching”, they wrote, “Andronicus of Rhodes put Aristotle’s treatises into order about 50 BC. He placed a series of writings after the PHYSICS and called them META-PHYSICS (literally AFTER-Physics)”.

4: Even though Aristotle spent a majority of his life making huge discoveries and writing, only about a third of the books and other pieces of writing has survived. His two types of works included one designed for the general public, and another precisely for teachers and students studying philosophy. | Then, the works by Aristotle can be divided into five more major parts: natural history, logic, philosophical, physical, and psychological. In these subjects and categories, Aristotle has written books and theories specifically towards these classifications. He has made many individual theories that come together and make sense to each subject in a way that is unquestionably and completely ethical.

5: Aristotle’s main works include the Animal History, the Prior Analytics (the rules of logics), the Physics, the Rhetorics, the Poetics, the Metaphysics, the Nicomachean Ethics, and the Politics. These all are his most famous books, which have become classics, making him one of the most powerful philosophers in all of the ages of time. | This photo contains Plato and his student, Aristotle, and it captures the difference between the two. From my point of view, it shows that Plato is old and wise, and he is holding one of his most famous books, Timaeus. After research, I have discovered that he is pointing up as a gesture that is symbolic of his search for the eternal forms. Next to him stands Aristotle, who is obviously younger, yet still sophisticated, as well as very well dressed. In his hand is a copy of his Nicomachean Ethics, and it has been proven that his other hand reaches out as a representation of his study, observation, and experience in nature.

8: "I hope you always have a shell in your pocket...and sand in your shoes."
