ARISTOTLE SELECTION [15 BOOKS] Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice, on the northern periphery of Classical Greece. His father, Nicomachus, died when Aristotle was a child, whereafter Proxenus of Atarneus became his guardian. At eighteen, he joined Plato's Academy in Athens and remained there until the age of thirty-seven (c. 347 BC). His writings cover many subjects –: including physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theater, music, rhetoric, linguistics, politics and government –: and constitute the first comprehensive system of Western philosophy. Shortly after Plato died, Aristotle left Athens and, at the request of Philip of Macedon, tutored Alexander the Great starting from 343 BC. Teaching Alexander the Great gave Aristotle many opportunities and an abundance of supplies. He established a library in the Lyceum which aided in the production of many of his hundreds of books. The fact that Aristotle was a pupil of Plato contributed to his former views of Platonism, but, following Plato's death, Aristotle immersed himself in empirical studies and shifted from Platonism to empiricism. He believed all peoples' concepts and all of their knowledge was ultimately based on perception. Aristotle's views on natural sciences represent the groundwork underlying many of his works. —:BOOKS—: ECONOMICS GREAT ETHICS ON THE SOUL METEOROLOGY POSTERIOR ANALYTICS CONSTITUTION OF THE ATHENIANS ON GENERATION AND CORRUPTION RHETORIC TO ALEXANDER SOPHISTICAL REFUTATIONS EUDEMIAN ETHICS ON MARVELLOUS THINGS HEARD ON THE HEAVENS PARTS OF ANIMALS POETICS THE CATEGORIES PUBLISHER: AETERNA PRESS
