Transcript of Aristotle

Aristotle was born 384 B.C. in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice. Aristotle was the greatest philosopher in all of ancient Greece. Philosophy is the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline. Aristotle was considered the father of all of the natural sciences. Aristotle died in 322 B.C. in Chalcis, Greece from a stomach disease.
Aristotle's dad's name was Nicomachus, his mom's name was Phaestis, his sibling's names were Arimneste and Arimnestus. Nicomachus died when Aristotle was a child; he was about 60 years old. His mother, Phaestis, was very rich and it is believed that she also died when Aristotle was young. His sister, Arimneste, was the first person that had ever tried to kill the Persian general. No much is known about his brother, Arimnestus, other than he was named for either a famous solider or famous king.

Aristotle returned to Athens around 335 B.C. Aristotle accepted a school to teach and to call it his own, called the Lyceum. They would also call the school the Peripatetic school. The school was located really close to the shrine of Apollo. Aristotle continued teaching until Alexander the Great's death in 323 B.C.
Aristotle was a Greek philosopher. One of Aristotle’s objective "was to come up with a universal process of reasoning that would allow man to learn every conceivable thing about reality." He also liked to study biology. He sorted animal species by the blood type of an animal. Most of his life he spent studying and teaching younger students.
