Aristotle was born in 384 B.C. and was (along with Plato and Socrates) the greatest philosopher of Ancient times. He, himself, was a student of Plato’s from whom he learned about the philosophical thinking of Socrates, which influenced his work.

Aristotle developed a philosophical method known as the Aristotelian Method. It consists of the means by which major life problems are to be confronted - no matter whether they are personal, social or political in nature.

He also guides us to the discovery of the real truth and goodness that is connected to human actions. The latter being in direct opposition to Plato.

Aristotle served as a teacher to Alexander the Great through 339/335 B.C. and afterwards founded the School of Philosophy in Athens known as the Lyceum of Aristotles, which grew quickly in fame. He died of illness in 322 B.C. in Chalkida, Evia Island.
