ARISTOTLE Science Strikes Back

Aristotle's Biology

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

Believes nothing is by chance, and that our senses were given so we can understand the world.

To engage the problem, we must begin with our senses.

How do our senses differ from other animals?

All forms of life have nutritive, reproductive and locomotive power

More complex animals have intelligence

Humans have an intellectual power: reason.

How does Aristotle differ from Socrates or Plato?

Aristotle is a scientific and practical thinker

He does not believe in forms, but thinks everything we can understand are things we can touch

Applies a scientific model to philosophical investigation

What is a teleological system?

Believed that everything in this world has causes

Where do the forms reside?

Aristotle believes the forms are inside things themselves

Example: the form of the Oak Tree is inside of the acorn

Each thing that we see is part of the teleological (goal oriented) system
