Aristotle vs. Plato

Aristotle vs. Plato

Aristotle and Plato are both ancient Greek philosophers who were not only contemporaries, but who knew one another well. They are well-known pillars of the "Golden Age" of Greece.

Aristotle was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in 384 BCE. His works span vast disciplines such as politics, ethics, zoology, history, and rhetoric. This famous thinker conducted scientific works and developed ethical and logical principles that were far ahead of his time and many of which still hold true today. He was a student of Plato.

Plato was a Greek philosopher born in 428 BCE. As founder of the Academy, he is known for sharing extensive philosophical thought. Plato was a student of Socrates and a teacher of Aristotle. Several letters and recorded dialogues of Plato's remain and have been published, but there is some doubt as to the authenticity of them all.

Both pillars of ancient philosophy have laid the groundwork for modern Western thought, whether in politics, ethics, logic, or rhetoric.
