Summary
  • Nearly 2,500 years ago, ancient Greece underwent a political and cultural transformation. It entered its golden age, one that would produce the establishment of democracy, the beginnings of university study, great strides in medicine and science, architectural advancements, and the creation of plays and epic poems that are still enjoyed today
  • Aristotle lived in Athens when the city flourished with scholars, artists, warriors, and politicians. He studied with Plato at the School of Athens, eventually distinguishing himself as a brilliant philosopher and scientist. Later, he established the Lyceum school in Athens, where he gave groundbreaking lectures on a broad variety of topics, such as logic, biology, and physics. His lectures and books are still considered to be important pieces of the foundations of philosophy and science
