My Aristotle Report
Hello, today you are going to be learning about the famous philosopher and scientist Aristotle. Did you know that Aristotle was born in 384 BC in the town of Stageira, Chalcidice and died in 322 BC? Well, he did. I hope you learn even more than this in my report. Thank you.
Now, you are going to be reading about whom he taught and who taught him. Aristotle was first taught and educated in the study of aristocracy. By the age of 18 he furthered his education in Athens at Plato’s Academy. After studying he did some brief studies in Asia and then became the head instructor at the Royal Academy of Macedon. There he taught Alexander the Great, Ptolemy, and Cassander.
Now, you are going to be reading about what he did in the field of science. After studying at Plato’s Academy he went with a man named, Xenocrates to Asia. While in Asia, Aristotle went to the island of Lesbos to investigate the botany and zoology of the island. Aristotle also contributed to many other physical sciences including, anatomy, astronomy, embryology, geography, geology, meteorology, and physics. He had also proposed a fifth element. This element was aether. By element I mean the classical elements like fire, wind, earth, and water. Aether was said to be the heavenly spheres that make up the planets and stars.
Now, you are going to be reading about how I think Aristotle has paved way for many of us today. I think that Aristotle has done many great things to help future generations. He has impacted Islam and Christian theories and so much more. I think he would have been able to help us more but through time, more than half of his work has disappeared. Many of his works that we have today actually have been rough drafts of his real work. I think he had also done good work for people of his time to; because he had built a school which had helped educate people and make them thrive and so much more. I think that without Aristotle’s work we would still be set back by so much in the world of science.
Well, I hope you learned way more than you knew about the amazing scientist Aristotle. I also hope you liked my report. Thank you for reading.
