Transcript of aristotle compared to modern philosophers.

fact about
Artistotle The intricate design
of Aristotle The foundation of democracy Aristotle's views What made him come
to this conclusion? Why was Aristotle a great philosopher? Aristotle and
his influence on modern philosophers His
predecesors. Overall, Aristotle believed that mob rule and a monarchy was bad and stressed the importance of thinking, and fair judgement by the right people. Reasoned that middle class members of society are the most reasonable choice to rule. He realized that democracy was the most effective way to rule He was a great philosopher because he realized the importance of fair judgement with also realizing that a mass of rich people could easily be corrupted. Socrates wanted the greatest good.
Plato wanted a fair republic that used reason instead of opinions. Plato used the ideas of his teacher and built on them. Aristotle's ideas influenced the teachings of European universities 1500 years after Aristotle laid down his ideas and went to the grave. It was a good thing too.
If he didnt, The democratic government would be very different and hostile to america's middle and lower class citizens because Artistole was the one who gave people the idea of middle class citizens to vote. This developement almost fully degraded the monarch's and upper class citizen's rule. King Upper Class Middle Class Lower Class (cc) image by rocketboom on Flickr (cc) image by quoimedia on Flickr John Locke was a modern philosopher who was influenced by Aristotle.

Bharath Gajjala
and Nitin Nuthikattu The three great philosophers Socratese,
Aristotle Socrates Plato Aristotle Taught Taught Aristotle was the student of both Plato and Socratese. Here are some people who followed Aristotle's ideas. Plato was the student of Socratese. Plato came to despise the geovernment because socratese was killed by it. Here are some people who followed Plato's ideas. Socratese was the mentor of Plato. He questioned everything. Here are some people who followed Socratese' ideas. Voltaire was a follower of plato because he hated the government and rebelled against it just like Plato. He also used reason instead of faith which was another characteristic of Plato. Catherine the great was a great follower of voltaire and followed his approach to logic to rule as well as possible without the interference of religion. John Locke was a follower of Aristotle because he wanted equal rights for all people and basically that "all men are created equal". He was also the person who thought that unlike Aristotle, John Locke wanted a small Government and freedom for the people. Thomas Hobbes was a follower of Aristotle because he believed in a strong government. But unlike Aristotle, he thought that people's rights were not relavant. That is why he wanted people to sign the social contract. Jean - Jaques Rousseau was a follower of Aristotle. He believed that people were good by birth but became bad based on the environment they lived in, especially the unequal distrobution of property. Adam Smith was a follower of Plato's ideas because he sought to regulate economics just like Plato wanted to regulate the lives of roman citizens. Adam Smith made famous the unknown idea of "Supply and Demand", one of a businessman's best friends. Fredrick the Great was a follower of Socratese because he worked for the greater good of his people and created many reforms. He made the government more efficient, and had tolerated religious differences. But unfortunately, in the end, he desired power for himself. Montesquieu was a follower of Socratese as well. Montesquieu was a rich noble and yet, did not like the power he held and wanted a fair govenment for the greater good. He even created the idea of "checks and Balances", a very widely used idea today. Joseph II was a follower of Socrates. He was the son of Catherine the great. He disguised himself as a common man to realize the problems of the many so that he could create reforms and solve problems. He sold the property of useless monasteries to further education and the care of the sick. Mary Woolstone Craft was a follower of both Socratese and Aristotle. She worked for the rights of women because she thought everyone was equal and Wanted the greatest good. Any Questions? Sorry for making you dizzy! The king was unsuited to rule because he/she could easily be corrupted and swayed into making stupid decisions. The upper class was unsuited to rule as well because they could easily come together and make corrupted decisions that would only benifit them. The middle class was the best suited to rule because they were highly educated but did not consider wealth when they took a decision. They only cared about the betterment of daily life. The lower class was unsuited to rule because they would make uneducated votes as well as try to take "revenge" or power without using common sense. He also wanted us to be slaves to our government. charming, isnt it? rousseau was a man who was influenced by his environment and his desire to fix it. Why do all these people wear wigs? its slightly annoying. Even though he was Freidrick the "great", it was a "great" effort to find a decent picture of this guy. Montesquieu was the only man who gave up his riches for the persuit of happiness. He was truly an unselfish man. The act of Joseph II acting like he did influenced a lot of literature and media that we see today. For example, in disney's classic tale of Aladdin, Princess Jasmine disguises herself and sneaks into the city. Another example would be spies the king hired to see who was traitorous and who wasnt. One of the first women radicalists He was the most unselfish thinker in all of the philosophers.
