Aristotle was a great thinker who used his reasoning ability and knowledge through others to draw ethical assumptions and principles Aristotle was once in favor of the teachings of Plato until he began to question his philosophy These ideas lead Aristotle to years of writing and teaching his work Aristotle was a professor for twenty years at an academy called Lyceum Lyceum is where Aristotle began to pursue a broader range of subjects He believed that a man could not claim to know a subject unless he is capable of transmitting his knowledge with others Simply teaching for Aristotle was as a manifestation of knowledge By the end of the 19th century scholars at the academy questioned his works This genus was alive during a period of havoc and corruption but he did not allow the ethics of man to stop his hunger for knowledge I will attempt to explain in detail some of the ethics that Aristotle established Evidence has proved that Aristotle influenced all areas of logic from art ethics and metaphysics just to name a few Art is defined by Aristotle as the realization in external form of a true idea and is the pleasure which we feel in recognizing likenesses Art however is not limited to mere copying It idealizes nature and completes its deficiencies it seeks to grasp the universal type in the individual phenomenon The distinction between poetic art and history is not that the one uses meter and the other does not The distinction is that while history is limited to what has actually happened poetry depicts things in their universal character Therefore poetry is more theoretical and more elevated than history Such imitation may represent people either as better or as worse than people usually are or it may neither go beyond nor fall below the average standard Comedy is the imitation of the worse examples of humanity However not in the sense of absolute badness
