Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato's teacher), Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. Aristotle's writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality and aesthetics, logic and science, politics and metaphysics. We will meet him from time to time, for example when we think about the need to classify ideas and concepts.
“To understand who you are, is to understand all that has been created that you are apart of. Study nature, the stars and the universe and you will see that the same laws that apply to them apply to you. Nothing dies, only transforms. Nothing is bad, but only needed for the next transformation. One humanity, one earth, one universe. All is connected.”
"No one in the history of civilization has shaped our understanding of science and natural philosophy more than the great Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle (384-322 BC), who exerted a profound and pervasive influence for more than two thousand years" -Gary B. Ferngren.
