Aristotle

(384-322 BC)

Aristotle was together with Plato the most influential philosopher of the western tradition. He was a student of Plato and was also the tutor to the young Alexander the Great. 

Aristotle is considered to be the first scientist, and he started off a revolutionary way of thinking, which has shaped our daily lives. Every thing we do and know in our modern way of life has something to do with scientific thought, which Aristotle first introduced. Aristotle's works come under three main headings; dialogues, collections facts by scientific methods, and systematic works. These works included logic, physics, natural science, metaphysics, politics, rhetoric, ethics and even poetry.
