And we should either take up philosophy, or kill ourselves, since all but philosophy is senseless and useless. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The book mentioned many ideas that we think of as “modern”: Aristotle seeks to understand nature in the same way that one might understand a friend.

In class, selected literary works, or works of literary criticism, will be discussed: The main part of the classes will be based on the relationship between culture and history of literature, reflecting the changes occurring in French society. So the best you could hope for was to get a sense of meaning about these deep questions, and Aristotle’s Physics was indeed a stab in this direction.

Zachęta do filozofii, Fizyka by Aristotle

I guess some of these didn’t catch on in Aristotle’s time; but it’s also clear that they weren’t novel to Darwin and Newton, just better defended by those guys. The soul is chained to the body, just like a certain tribe tortured prisoners by chaining them to corpses. Maybe it’s not too far from how the kids these days use it: Nobody likes hard work, he says, but people like philosophy, so it can’t be hard work. When he first defined them, I couldn’t be bothered to memorize the differences; but then every argument that builds on these distinctions also becomes meaningless to me.


His responses to Zeno’s paradoxes are pretty satisfying. So in our heads, we all have a set number of places for facts, and education is the process of replacing false ones with true ones?

Finally, modern physics shares with Aristotle the hijacking of common words and phrases, assigning specific technical meanings.

I appreciated Sachs’ very positive spin on the work, but the Physics still felt rather tedious, and I had trouble reminding myself why I’m even reading it.

Voltaire by Julianna Maria on Prezi

But perhaps his starting assumptions are easier to swallow than, say, Plato’s? And yet, at other times Aristotle concedes that joy comes not from knowing things but from applying that knowledge to do good. Their arguments are wrong because B. And yet he uses plenty of analogies: After having completed this course, the student should: It sounds like the common view that students’ minds are empty vessels, and you just pour facts from a full vessel the teacher into their minds, until then they’re educated.

Some notes I found helpful from other reviewers: So if we can already do the same here in regular life, why wouldn’t we? I don’t see any of that in Aristotle’s physics.

Something about the differences between motions that cause a change from A to B, vs bring Filozofifzne into existence, vs cause B to stop existing?


Neither of these two worlds are accessible to us. At one point he outright rejects the idea that the filozoficzn of motion can change; so it’s not kosher to discuss acceleration; so what effect does that have on the engineers you train?


Meanwhile, in another place filozoficzzne says the opposite of learning isn’t forgetting, but rather learning a falsehood. Ah, also, I don’t like his implicit theory of pedagogy. A prodigious researcher and writer, Aristotle left a great body of work, perhaps numbering as many as two-hundred treatises, from which approximately thirty-one survive.

First, the present, general entry offers a brief account of Aristotle’s life and characterizes his central philosophical commitments, highlighting his most distinctive methods and most influential achievements. When I’m lying in bed on a lazy weekend morning not hungry, no schedule for the day, etc.

It lends itself to engineering and invention and prediction, in very pragmatic ways. There’s still potential to learn something from the shapes of the arguments, but it’s woltr to stay engrossed. But I’m glad the question came up.

Topics discussed during the classes: Next, as a statistician, I liked reading Aristotle’s view of chance. The set of entries on Aristotle in this site addresses this situation by proceeding in three tiers.
