“All men by nature desire knowledge.”

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.

Aristotle influenced not only philosophy but also science as well as Christian and Islamic thought for centuries to come.
