aristotle

My heros name is Aristotle the greek philospher from 384 BC- 322 BC. He was a student of the Plato and taught Alexander the great. Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures, his writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of western philosophy, encompassing morality and aesthetics, logic and science, politics and metaphysics.

Aristotle wrote about metaphysics which is is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world.Rhetoric is the art and study of the use of language with persuasive effect. In Aristotle's systematization of rhetoric, one important aspect of rhetoric to study and theorize was the three persuasive audience appeals: logos, pathos, and ethos, as well as the five canons of rhetoric: invention or discovery, arrangement, style, memory, and delivery. Along with grammar and logic or dialectic, rhetoric is one of the three ancient arts of discourse.

Aristotle was born in stageira, chalcidice in 384 BC.His father Nicomachus was the personal physician to King Amyntas of Macedon. Aristotle was trained and educated as a member of the aristocracy. At about the age of eighteen, he went to Athens to continue his education at Plato's Academy

Aristotle was in the time of 384 BC- 322 BC. Athens was his home. he had a wife, established a school of his own known as Lyceum. he not only studied every subject but made significant contributions to most of them. he made many differences in his time and inspired 3 kings.

Aristotle is important to me because he made changes in his lifetime that people now still talk about him still read his stories and teachings. i just want to be one of those people that will have there name remembered forever.
