Aristotle Audio

One of the founders of Western philosophy, Aristotle wrote extensively about a wide array of subjects ranging from physics and biology to theater and poetry. He lived from 384 BC to 322 BC, but his influence is still significant in today's world. In a continual quest for knowledge, he spent almost twenty years studying at Plato's Academy. He studied and wrote about as many subjects as he possibly could, even traveling to Asia, where he studied the botany and zoology of the island of Lesbos.

In 343 BC, Aristotle became tutor to Alexander the Great and head of the royal academy of Macedon. Seven years later he established his own school in Athens called the Lyceum. During this time, Aristotle is thought to have written many of his works. Most were in the form of dialogues or treatises that are considered to have been written as study aids for his students.

If you want to familiarize yourself with Aristotle, Aristotle's Poetics is available on audio download. Poetics discusses the principles of storytelling, including unity of plot and character development. It is considered to be an important explanation of dramatic and literary theory and is still popular among writers today.

The Politics describes man as a "political animal" and explains how virtue comes about through active participation in local politics. Aristotle discusses how the ideal state aims for the common good instead of the good of a mere portion of the population.
