The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival. Aristotle

Aristotle ( 384–322 BC)[A] was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of StagiraChalkidikiGreece. Along with Plato, he is considered the “Father of Western Philosophy”. Aristotle provided a complex and harmonious synthesis of the various existing philosophies prior to him, including those of Socrates and Plato, and it was above all from his teachings that the West inherited its fundamental intellectual lexicon, as well as problems and methods of inquiry. As a result, his philosophy has exerted a unique influence on almost every form of knowledge in the West and it continues to be central to the contemporary philosophical discussion.
