Aristotle

How do our senses differ from animals'?

nutritive, reproductive, and locomotive power

animals have the power of sensation and perception, complex animals have intellectual power, humans have reason, animals don't

Biology

"All men by nature desire to know. An example is the delight we take in our senses."

TRUST YOUR SENSES, Senses help us understand the world, to engage in knowledge, must begin with senses

Teleological System

everything in the world has a cause

material cause- the material from which the thing is made, formal cause- the shape or form a thing takes in order to be recognized, efficient cause- the actual force used to make thing, final cause- the ultimate purpose of the thing

Different from Plato and Socrates?

Aristotle is scientific and practical

doesn't believe in world of forms, everything that we can understand are the things that we can touch, applies scientific model to philosophical investigation
