“All men by nature desire knowledge.”
– Aristotle, On Man and The Universe
This ancient Greek philosopher was a student of Plato’s and lived between 384 and 322 BC.
Plato and Aristotle are considered to be the founders of Western philosophy, which refers to a system of thought.
If we break the word philosophy down to its origins “phil-” means “loving” and “-osophy” refers to science in the broad sense, as in a system of thought.
Aristotle influenced not only philosophy but also science as well as Christian and Islamic thought for centuries to come.
