Aristotle

Post  Omeara on Fri Jan 30, 2015 10:22 am

Aristotle was born in Stagira, in the northern part of Greece. He was the son of Nichomachus, the court physician to the Macedonian royal family. He was trained first in medicine, and then in 367 BC he was sent to Athens to study philosophy with Plato.
After Alexander's death, Athens rebelled against Macedonian rule, and Aristotle's political situation became critical, so to avoid being put to death, he fled to the island of Euboea, where he died soon after.

Volney what you wrote about Aristotle was good, because you mention where he was born and what kind of family he lived with. Something that you could have mention how he studied in the academy of Plato for about 20 years. Another thing you could have mention is that he wasn't accepting the theories that Plato did. Still what you have said is really good and some of the things that you mention and never knew. Very Happy

Great Volney. Aristotle was one of the three important philosophers. Did you that he left behind may writings which became the basis for later educational systems in Europe. He was the tutor of Alexander the Great.
Good Work!!!

Good job Volney! Did you know that he developed his own ideas about the best kind of government? He didn't think democracy was the best form of government, though. He thought it led to mob rule. He supported the rule by a single and strong leader. Very interesting topic! Very Happy
