Product description

Synopsis

Expressions which are in no way composite signify substance, quantity, quality, relation, place, time, position, state, action, or affection. To sketch my meaning roughly, examples of substance are 'man' or 'the horse', of quantity, such terms as 'two cubits long' or 'three cubits long', of quality, such attributes as 'white', 'grammatical'. 'Double', 'half', 'greater', fall under the category of relation; 'in a the market place', 'in the Lyceum'.

About the Author

Aristotle (384–322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and scientist. At seventeen or eighteen, he joined Plato's Academy in Athens and remained there until the age of thirty-seven (347 BC). His writings cover many subjects – including physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theatre, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Introducing the Master of the Material World: Aristotle! 25 Sept. 2005
By An Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gathered from lectures from Aristotle's school known as the Lyceum, this book reproduces the way things were categorized and why and is quite fascinating to read. Most, when thinking of Aristotle, think about his works on Logic or Ethics, but he was also a zoologist, an astronomer, a geologist, a meteorologist, and also knew anatomy and physics. Aristotle most likely knew everything there was to learn in his culture. That makes this book especially interesting coming from that perspective.
