Aristotle: Philosopher, Teacher, and Scientist by Sharon Katz Cooper

Aristotle lived in Athens during a time when the city flourished with scholars, artists, warriors, and politicians. He studied with Plato at the School of Athens, eventually distinguishing himself as a brilliant philosopher and scientist. Later, he established the Lyceum school in Athens, where he gave groundbreaking lectures on a broad variety of topics, such as logic, biology, and physics. His lectures and books are still considered to be important pieces of the foundations of philosophy and science.
