FC: Aristotle's Scrapbook By: Grace Newell
1: Truth is what is believed to be legitimate at the time, and has not been proved wrong.
2: Socrates tutored Plato, Plato tutored Aristotle, and Aristotle tutored Alexander the Great. Aristotle found truth through the guidance of others as well as mentoring others. As Alexander the Great said, "I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well." Which shows that teachers open many doors in knowledge that showcase the truth. | "Teaching is the highest form of understanding" -Aristotle
3: Aristotle finds truth through logic that is centered around deduction and induction. Although logic can be used at times with complete accuracy or a great theory, the philosophy is also flawed, because not everything is explainable, and can be very controversial and not always proved. The logic of one man may be different than another.
4: Aristotle searched for truth, as he tried to fill in the gaps of religion, and understand and justify the reason and source of why things are alive, as he connects animals, plants (which he researched) as souls. That every living thing has a soul, and that is the reason it lives.
5: Aristotle uses rhetoric, which is meant to persuade, to get the truth out. It is supposed to make the alternative option look controversial, making this technique psychological. The positive is that it is an effective way of persuasion, but can also be used for the wrong reasons, and can turn something that is true, into something false and twisted.
6: Uses science as evidence, because it relates to mathematics and metaphysics. And believes that science explains what is already known, and only reinforces. Science reasons many topics and theories of the world. I think science can only go so far to explain because there are still things yet to be figured out, and science has not been supporting everything that has occurred.
7: Molded many areas of learning for others with his research and logic, which he believed to be true. Some were later proved wrong, and the ones left, controversial. It is found that his findings were true, but only in the 19th century, showing that things can change; therefore, the truth will change. It is good that he gave the truth that he believed to be true, but not all of his philosophies can still be used today, due to the era in time as well as how it is different now. dialect
8: Many of Aristotle's beliefs and theories, as well as findings and philosophies are still used today, although not all of them. He uses his philosophies to find truth, but because philosophies are man made, not every philosophy is right for each person, and can be very controversial. But they can also be supported by many, and prove to correct.
9: positives and negatives. | He uses dialect to find the truth in what information has been passed down from others, or what is believed by many. Because you are learning from another human being, there is a great possibility of the person you are being educated by is wrong in what they are teaching; therefore, passing down incorrect information. The positive is that you can learn from prior experiences and also hear correct information that would not of been known without being told.
10: Found truth through politics, as he labeled the forms of government. Also found there was a difference in politics and morality. Politics tend to now be corrupted, and which shows that even today, even a good politician, may not be a good person. The bad thing is that although a good person, they are bad at politics, but some who are good at politics, are not always good people. The good thing, is that if not moral, you have someone who is looking for the best for the government with stability.
11: Used friendship as an exchange of education, and found friendship a good feature of life. Because you can learn from each other. The good thing is that you have a companion to argue with as equals and show the other different points of view, but the con is that sometimes it can cause conflict when there is a big disagreement.
