Papers On His Philosophies


In all probability it was Aristotle, more so than any other philosopher, who determined much of Western thought as we know it today. His work included that in philosophy, and in science. He covered subjects as diverse as physics and political theory. He invented the formal study of logic and pioneered the study of zoology. Aristotle’s importance as both a scientist and as a philosopher is phenomenal. Although much of his scientific work has now been replaced with what is modern and more exact, his philosophical contributions are those that are still being discussed and debated today.
   Aristotle considered the primary principles of politics and law to be "the search for the greatest good of society as a whole." Inasmuch as the original Greek legal process aspired to achieve such status, it can readily be said that its integrity has been severely compromised through the centuries. As a direct result of Plato's law and Aristotle's politics, the masses were privy to a "fuller understanding of issues of justice and the relationships among the individual, law, and politics." 
   Aristotle was instrumental in acknowledging the fact that universal law of good will can only exist if what is right for one person is also extended to the next: "…If it was right for one person to take a given action then it must be right for all others to be encouraged to take that same action."
