"The questions that Aristotle asked marked a turning point in the history of mankind. An intellectual awakening so beautiful its day has not yet come to a close."
Henry Jones, Sr.[src]

Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher whose work has proven seminal to many concepts in western civilization.


Aristotle was born in the ancient Greek city of Stagira. In 367 BC, he traveled to Athens to study at the Academy under Plato.
