Aristotle

 
 

Aristotle
(384–322 BC)
 was a Greek philosopher and scientist.
His father, Nicomachus, died when Aristotle was a child,
whereafter Proxenus of Atarneus became his guardian.
At eighteen, he joined Plato's Academy in Athens
and remained there until the age of thirty-seven (c. 347 BC).
His writings cover many subjects – including
physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theater, music, rhetoric, linguistics, politics and government
 – and constitute the first comprehensive system of Western philosophy.

    Shortly after Plato died, Aristotle left Athens and, at the request of Philip of Macedon, tutored Alexander the Great starting from 343 BC. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, "Aristotle was the first genuine scientist in history ... and] every scientist is in his debt. -WikiPedia
