Meet the Author

Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC) was a Greek philosopher, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato's teacher), Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. Aristotle's writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality and aesthetics, logic and science, politics and metaphysics. Aristotle's views on the physical sciences profoundly shaped medieval scholarship, and their influence extended well into the Renaissance, although they were ultimately replaced by Newtonian physics. In the zoological sciences, some of his observations were confirmed to be accurate only in the 19th century. His works contain the earliest known formal study of logic, which was incorporated in the late 19th century into modern formal logic. In metaphysics, Aristotelianism had a profound influence on philosophical and theological thinking in the Islamic and Jewish traditions in the Middle Ages, and it continues to influence Christian theology, especially the scholastic tradition of the Catholic Church. His ethics, though always influential, gained renewed interest with the modern advent of virtue ethics. All aspects of Aristotle's philosophy continue to be the object of active academic study today. Though Aristotle wrote many elegant treatises and dialogues (Cicero described his literary style as "a river of gold"), it is thought that the majority of his writings are now lost and only about one-third of the original works have survived.

the athenian constitution was very interesting as part of a study of the history of democracy as it unfolded in ancient greece. some may be disappointed that a morjority amoung 5000 was the penultimate achievement rather than a vote of the general population, yet i believe for it's time this was quite an achievement. the ebb and flow of democracy across centuries in ancient greece is chronicled along with brief descriptions of athens great leaders and their defining issues. my greatest disappointment with the book was it's brevity and i found it quite a short read. for any one concerning themselves with the history of democracy this is a must read.

Or even better, take down that ad you posted there. Could whoever posted that maybe show some respect for coexisting rps? Whoever posted that please take it down. I didnt spend a year and a half making that rp from scratch for nothing.

Hey guys, I am Flower Night, and I will be coming back in July sometime. I bet none of you remembe me, unless you were here like... wow, its been about 2 years since I left... So, if you weren't here back then, you probably don't know me, or my friends who were here when I left.. Matthew/Etho, Katie, Oraborous, Jason, Zero, Jethro, Chase, I could go on and on... But, my friends know who they are, so I won't... I miss my friends, I miss my Home, I miss my Life!! I won't be gone forever, and when I am going to be the leader I was meant to be at Camp Ethics (so, not Seth, not Kenny, not anyone who is incharge), Matt and Oraborous by my side, second in command.. I will whip this place back into the camp it was when I left, and then make it better. I owe a lot to this place, and I owe a lot to the people who were here... I miss them, I love them... Well, hopefully I will come back in July, and I will see them then... Bye guys, and Spread the news, I AM COMING HOME!!!! WOO!!! FINALLY!!!! ~ Flower Night
