FOR THE PRE-SOCRATIC PHILOSOPHERS THE SOUL WAS THE SOURCE OF MOVEMENT AND SENSATION, WHILE FOR PLATO IT WAS THE SEAT OF BEING, METAPHYSICALLY DISTINCT FROM THE BODY THAT IT WAS FORCED TEMPORARILY TO INHABIT. PLATO S STUDENT ARISTOTLE WAS DETERMINED TO TEST THE TRUTH OF BOTH THESE BELIEFS AGAINST THE EMERGING SCIENCES OF LOGIC AND BIOLOGY. HIS EXAMINATION OF THE HUGE VARIETY OF LIVING ORGANISMS THE ENORMOUS RANGE OF THEIR BEHAVIOUR, THEIR POWERS AND THEIR PERCEPTUAL SOPHISTICATION CONVINCED HIM OF THE INADEQUACY BOTH OF A MATERIALIST REDUCTION AND OF A PLATONIC SUBLIMATION OF THE SOUL. IN DE ANIMA, HE SOUGHT TO SET OUT HIS THEORY OF THE SOUL AS THE ULTIMATE REALITY OF EMBODIED FORM AND PRODUCED BOTH A MASTERPIECE OF PHILOSOPHICAL INSIGHT AND A PSYCHOLOGY OF PERENNIALLY FASCINATING SUBTLETY.

About the Author

(Greece: >)
(Arabic: >)

Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E.) numbers among the greatest philosophers of all time. Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer: Aristotles works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, and even today continue to be studied with keen, non-antiquarian interest. A prodigious researcher and writer, Aristotle left a great body of work, perhaps numbering as many as two-hundred treatises, from which approximately thirty-one survive. His extant writings span a wide range of disciplines, from logic, metaphysics and philosophy of mind, through ethics, political theory, aesthetics and rhetoric, and into such primarily non-philosophical fields as empirical biology, where he excelled at detailed plant and animal observation and taxonomy. In all these areas, Aristotles theories have provided illumination, met with resistance, sparked debate, and generally stimulated the sustained interest of an abiding readership.

Because of its wide range and its remoteness in time, Aristotles philosophy defies easy encapsulation. The long history of interpretation and appropriation of Aristotelian texts and themes—spanning over two millennia and comprising philosophers working within a variety of religious and secular traditions—has rendered even basic points of interpretation controversial. The set of entries on Aristotle in this site addresses this situation by proceeding in three tiers. First, the present, general entry offers a brief account of Aristotles life and characterizes his central philosophical commitments, highlighting his most distinctive methods and most influential achievements. Second are General Topics which offer detailed introductions to the main areas of Aristotles philosophical activity. Finally, there follow Special Topics which investigate in greater detail more narrowly focused issues, especially those of central concern in recent Aristotelian scholarship > <
