Aristotle is often underrated in educational circles but the impact of his philosophy and his actions are evident in the schools and universities around us today. Aristotle developed the first proper university that had different departments and vast collections of texts and artefacts. His philosophy has also influenced the greatest minds since his time, from Aquinas to today's logicians, rationalists, and empiricists. The influence of his educational thinking and his philosophy in general helped underpin the Renaissance and the modern era. In a nutshell, Aristotle took our thinking and said, 'make it sharper.' Alexander Moseley offers a thorough and comprehensive overview of the works of Aristotle and explores the influence of his thought and writings and their impact on our education systems today.
Alexander Moseley is the author of several philosophy books including An Introduction to Political Philosophy, An A-Z of Philosophy and John Locke in this educational series. He has authored two novels and lectured at the University of Evansville, US, before setting up his own educational company which he runs with his wife, Moira.
