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

Cultural Analysis On Death And The AfterlifeCultural Analysis on Death and the Afterlife Jeff Jin Hung Tong If there is one constant in this world, it would surely be death. Dying is an unavoidable part of life. Indeed, everything that lives will at sometime die. The fear of death is held by everyone. Perhaps it is the correlation of death with pain or the unknown state of the human consciousness after death, maybe a combination of both, that creates this fear. The fear felt is undoubtedly universal, however, the ways in which it is dealt
Alchemy -The Predecessor Of Modern ChemistryAlchemy -The Predecessor of Modern Chemistry Erika Paul There are many ways to examine the subject of alchemy, including alchemy as a source of symbolism, psychology, and mysticism. It has also been an influence on the world view of various writers, artist, and musicians.

Alchemy is an ancient art, prac
Legitimizing Final CausesLegitimizing Final Causes The word telos in ancientGreek meant: goal, target, mission, completion, perfection. The Greeks seem to have associated the attaining of a goal with perfection. Modern scientific thought is much less sanguine about teleology, the belief that causes are preceded by their effects. The idea is less zany than it sounds. It was Aristotle who postulated the existence of four types of causes. It all started with the attempt to differentiate explanatory theories from theor

AlchemyAlchemy Unknown The science by aid of which the chemical philosophers of medieval times attempted to transmute the baser metals into gold or silver. There is considerable divergence of opinion as to the etymology of the word, but it would seem to be derived from the Arabic al=the, and kimya=chemistry, which in turn derives from the late Greek chemica=chemistry, from chumeia=a mingling, or cheein, 'to pour out' or 'mix', Aryan root ghu, to pour, whence the word 'gush'.

Humans cause their own suffering as an insane matter of courseIn the past century dreadful diseases like diphtheria, leprosy and typhoid were halted; sterile women have been given children; numerous devices have been developed to let handicapped people participate in society. Many of the things we prayed for during ages have been achieved by means of expensive scientific research. What is hard to understand however is that humans spent even more scientific efforts and even more finances to destroy all those benefits. For each disease we have overcome, we h
eatSince primitive ages, man has been fascinated by the pageant of the skies?the sun, the moon, the planets, the stars, and their ceaseless movements. The rising and setting of the sun, the waxing and waning of the moon, the succession of the seasons, the advance and retreat of the planets were not only observable facts, but in numerous respects affected mankind?s daily existence. It is not strange, therefore, that a vast body of legends, and even religions, grew up around celestial phenomena. As c
history of artIt can be argued that the vanguard of development has always been reflected in the arts of a culture. It is the poets, the dreamers and artists who are the architects of the future; the ones who build the world they want to live in, the ones who dream out loud1. Music is an elaborate art form, tempered by the emotions of those who create it and as such the dreams, creations and inventions are partly the products ? or at least artifacts ? of the world around them. As such, the social, economic
