Discussion for Aristotle's Biology
alissa gonzalez (Student)
This is a great article and peice of scientific literature and a must-read for anyone going in to the science field. It combine Aristotle's philosophies and scientific observations.

I just love Aristotle. Socrates and Plato were the great philosophers, as was Aristotle, but he wanted to know more and expanded his horizons to other sciences. He did have a student that tried to put forth an evolution like theory that Aristotle shot down saying a horse begats a horse, a chicken begats a chicken.

This website is great for teachers covering Aristotle and his research. The material is indepth about Aristotle, his beliefs, and his research. This website would also work for any student working on a paper about Aristotle.

I find it fascinating that Aristotle understood so much about biology! I had previously been under the assumption that his works were primarily philosophical; on the contrary, they are far more advanced than many believe. A very interesting read - I will surely use this reference in later academic research.

It is interesting to me that during Aristotle's time, Philosophy was essentially the same as science. People sought to understand the world. Philosophy means love of wisdom: I think that's pretty much what science is!

It is always interesting to find out how science was approached and the thouhgt process of these great phiolosphers. A great article for thpse interested in the origin of western scientific beliefs.
