BC: The End | In conclusion, my quest for truth has been one that spanned over many years and i believe i found much truth in this world. Of course there is no way to know what a truth truly is but i believe that what i have discovered is as close as anyone else has ever. In actuality a truth is simply something that everybody believes in.
FC: The truth is rarely pure and never simple. -Oscar Wilde | My Pursuit of Truth | By Aristotle
2: My pursuit of truth began when my father sent me off to study under the great Plato at the Academy of Plato. Maser Plato taught me many great things and he started me on my quest to find truth in this world. I left the academy after Plato died and was replaced by his cousin, Speusippus. Speusippus is a great man but he does not know how to run an Academy.
3: The very first truth i pursued is the truth of education. What is the correct way to educate our children? I was given the opportunity to find out when Philip the II of Macedon asked me to come and tutor his son Alexander. I found the best way to educate him was to first break him down and utterly ruin him then build him back up in the image i wish him to be. This has made him the strong leader he is today.
4: The next truth i sought to discover was the truth of science. What is science and what are the different categories of science? I came up with three categories for science.,practical, poetical and theoretical. Practical science is the study of ethics and politics, poetical science is the study of poems, art, and literature, and theoretical science is the study of mathematics and physics. All of these things are ways of pursuing truth
5: One question that has been asked by almost everyone on the planet, what is the earth made of? That was the truth i decided to investigate. I found that the earth is made of five different elements. Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Aether. Earth is cold, dry, and solid. Water is cold, wet, and a liquid. Air is hot, wet, and a gas. Fire is hot and dry. Aether makes up the heavenly bodies, such as stars.Each of these elements have their own place in this world.
6: My next truth is the truth of an items cause or an explanation of how a thing came to be. Everything has four causes. The first is a things material cause which is what the thing is made of. For example a house's material causes would be wood and stone. An items formal cause is the way its material causes are arranged. An efficient or moving cause is the principle for creating the item. For example, the efficient cause for a table is the art of table making. A final cause is the last type of cause, which is an items purpose.
7: While i was on the Island of Lesbos I began to study the wildlife of that island. I wrote books on the truth of Cephalopods and other creatures. I mostly studied the body parts of these animals and the functions of those parts.
8: I was one of the first people to study and create classifications of animals. I classify animals into two categories. Those with blood and those without blood. Animals with blood were further classified into animals that gave birth to live offspring and those that give birth to eggs. Animals without blood were further classified into insects, crustacea, and testacea. | Animals With Blood
9: What many people in the world assume is that we all have one soul. That is not true. We actually have three souls. They are the vegetative soul, the sensitive soul, and the rational soul. The vegetative soul is a soul that every living thing in the entire world has. We share with all plants and animals. The sensitive soul is one that is only shared between breathing and eating organisms. Finally the rational soul is the one soul that all humans have.
10: The next truth i investigated was the truth of Ethics. When something is good, that means they work in accordance as to what it was supposed to work for. For example, for an eye to be a good eye it must function in the way it was intended to.
11: One of the final truths i examined was the truth of Physics. I discovered that they are three ways to change an object. The first is growth and diminution, which is change in quantity. The second is locomotion, which is change in space. The third is alteration, which is a change in quality.
