Aristotle at the library

Aristotle was one of the most seminal thinkers in world history. Born in Macedonia in 384 B.C., Aristotle traveled to Athens where he studied under Plato. However, while Plato focused on deductive reasoning and esoteric ideas, such as his theory of forms, Aristotle interested himself in empirical observations. A keen viewer of the natural world, he wrote in depth on causation and the nature of change. His writings formed the foundation of natural philosophy and, in turn, modern science. He was also interested in metaphysics, ethics, poetry, rhetoric, and politics. For Aristotle, the pursuit of learning, virtue, and civic engagement were all a part of eudaimonia, or good living. At the library we have a wide selection of works by and about Aristotle.
