The Great Aristotle of Greece

Aristotle

There lived a great man named Aristotle of Greece. He laid a great foundation for today’s exploits. Read a few things about this legend.

Did you know, Aristotle was a student of Plato and in turn, he (Aristotle) tutored the famous king,  Alexander the Great?
Aristotle was, and remains a great man. He is a man of many parts: he studied many subjects possible at the time and made significant contributions. His writings cover many subjects, including physics,  poetry, theater, music,  rhetorics, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology.
According to Wikipedia, Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. His writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality (virtue ethics), aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics.

Interestingly, Aristotle, means “the best purpose”. Unfortunately, in some environments, Aristotle shortened as ARISTO is a word used in a negative sense, the sugar-daddy relationships. But in truth, Aristotle is a good name which also stands for great achievements.
