Overall, this was a rather strange defense of philosophy that didn’t jive with my assumptions, experience, or conclusions. The Stoics said anyone can and should be a philosopher, even slaves like Epictetus. This wolte is not yet featured on Listopia. Second are General Topics which offer detailed introductions to the main areas of Aristotle’s philosophical activity.

Also, modern science focuses on mathematically describing inert elements, a filozoficczne universe, atoms in void; life is incidental, not foundational; cause is used in an immediate sense A caused B to move by knocking into it but not in the sense of taking responsibility.

But I’m glad the question came up. I don’t see any of that in Aristotle’s physics.

For example, some things are heavy because they strive to get closer to the earth, their natural resting place, and resist being dragged away up unnaturally. Much more meaning-imbued than Newton’s equation for gravity. In all these areas, Aristotle’s theories have provided illumination, met with resistance, sparked debate, and generally stimulated the sustained interest of an abiding readership.


Institute of French Studies for: Maybe it’s not too far from how the kids these days use it: So the best you could hope for was to get a sense of meaning about these deep questions, and Aristotle’s Physics was indeed a stab in this direction.

It lends itself to engineering and invention and prediction, in very pragmatic ways.

And the best part is contemplating the truth, not the grind of arriving at it. To this end, it will be necessary to determine social and cultural relations in Old Regime France.

Today’s careful empirical hypothesis-checking wasn’t just trying to displace ignorance; it was displacing Aristotle’s careful exploration of “nature as primarily experienced” or “a disciplined reflection on our experience,” in Sachs’ words.

But it’s worth reading to see how Aristotle argues and defends his positions. 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.

Something about the differences between motions that cause a change from A to B, vs bring A into existence, vs cause B to stop existing?

Aristotle points out that not only the distance, but also the time taken, are infinitely divisible in exactly the same manner; so the times taken to traverse the sum of infinitesimal distances also add up to a finite time. Those who reach the Fortunate Isles have no needs or wants, and get no benefit from anything, but spend their time on philosophical reflection.


This is not like the Stoic approach, which seemed to put more value on work and duty. And we should either take up philosophy, or kill ourselves, since all but philosophy is senseless and useless. Nov 27, Antoni Wandzilak rated it really liked it. He often uses the example that you can’t teach something unless you know it.

This was my reading from the Great Philosophers series from Gazeta Wyborcza. 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.


One volume containing multiple works. Want to Read saving…. Ah, also, I don’t like his implicit theory of pedagogy. I guess some of these didn’t catch on in Aristotle’s time; but it’s also clear that they weren’t novel to Darwin and Newton, just better defended by those guys.

He distinguishes natural vs. At one point he outright rejects the idea that the speed of motion can change; so it’s not kosher to discuss acceleration; so what effect does that have on the engineers you train? Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer:
