Aristotle is one of the greatest philosophers in the Grecian history. He left a deep impact on Greek thought and Christian thought beyond the classical, ancient and modern thought. He is one of the most famous students of Plato. Aristotle was born in 385 BC in Stagira in Macedon .His father was a doctor of King Amanitas second (Amanitas II) and he belonged to family doctors. In 367 or 366 BC Aristotle came to Athens and entered the academy, where he remained until the death of its founder Plato, having spent twenty years there.
Aristotle had Moved to Troy , and then moved to Matlin , on the island of Lesbos , and resided to that , he was called , in 342 BC , the Macedonian Phillips (son of Amanitas II) to be entrusted with raising his son Alexander the Great. When Alexander took the throne in 334 BC, Aristotle returned to Athens and founded a school near the Temple of Apollo "peripatetic", hence, this school named after "peripatetic"». After the death of Alexander the Great, in 323 BC, the Athenians revolted against Aristotle because his loyalty to the throne of Macedon, and his being atheism of religions, so that they considered Aristotle’s wise such a threat not to make the Athenians who commit the same crime committed by them with Socrates, he left Athens and traveled to the city of Khalkis where he died.
Aristotle wrote many and varied works , but we have received only 47 works, which can be categorized , in terms of subject, in the following sections : the logical books , including: statements , and the ferry , the first analysis , the second analysis and debate , and fallacies sophistry, and Natural books , which are : Listening natural , in the sky , in the universe, corruption , the upper and effects or weather phenomena , psychology, and naturalist Minor. He also wrote five books on natural history such as animal history, members of the animal, the composition of the animal, the animal walking, and the movement of animals.
I like Aristotle’s style who is characterized by Plato in his thinking makes sense based on the analysis, and the launch of tangible physical reality. This logical and analytical thinking is very apparent in his approach, but printing your overall character of his ideas, and where linguistic issues, with the scientific tendency, tried as much as possible, to relieve his unit, adding experience and observation to analysis. The tendency of realism, it can be observed even in the first philosophy, as it set off from the natural world, then ascended to the world non-material for the study of absolute principles of existence
After Aristotle’s father died, Proxenus of Atarneus, who was married to Aristotle’s older sister, Arimneste, became Aristotle’s guardian until he came of age. When Aristotle turned 17, Proxenus sent him to Athens to pursue a higher education. At the time, Athens was considered the academic center of the universe. In Athens, Aristotle enrolled in Plato’s Academy, Greek’s premier learning institution, and proved an exemplary scholar. Aristotle maintained a relationship with Greek philosopher Plato, himself a student of Socrates, and his academy for two decades. Plato died in 347 B.C. Because Aristotle had disagreed with some of Plato’s philosophical treatises, Aristotle did not inherit the position of director of the academy, as many imagined he would.
One of the main focuses of Aristotle’s philosophy which I agree totally with him about was his systematic concept of logic. Aristotle’s objective was to come up with a universal process of reasoning that would allow a man to learn every conceivable thing about reality. The initial process involved describing objects based on their characteristics, states of being and actions. In his philosophical treatises, Aristotle also discussed how a man might next obtain information about objects through deduction and inference. To Aristotle, a deduction was a reasonable argument in which “when certain things are laid down, something else follows out of necessity in virtue of their being so.” His theory of deduction is the basis of what philosophers now call a syllogism, a logical argument where the conclusion is inferred from two or more other premises of a
