Read full description of the books:Aristoteles (384-322 a. C.), discipulo de Platon durante veinte anos y preceptor de Alejandro Magno, alcanzo a su vez el magisterio en todas las ciencias. En La Politica, una de las ultimas obras del filosofo, ha dejado un texto de consulta imprescindible para los que quieran profundizar en la existencia del Estado y en la participacion del hombre definido como en la sociedad. Aristoteles enfatiza en esta obra sobre el caracter social del hombre y el fundamento natural de la ciudad.
Aun despues de los siglos transcurridos, en el campo de lo politico constituye una de las fuentes de meditacion mas respetadas de Occidente, tratando los problemas basicos del hombre como animal politico y, por tanto, esencialmente social.
Read information about the author(Greece: Αριστοτέλης)
Aristotle (384–322 B.C.E.) numbers among the greatest philosophers of all time. Judged solely in terms of his philosophical influence, only Plato is his peer: Aristotle's works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance, and even today continue to be studied with keen, non-antiquarian interest. 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. His extant writings span a wide range of disciplines, from logic, metaphysics and philosophy of mind, through ethics, political theory, aesthetics and rhetoric, and into such primarily non-philosophical fields as empirical biology, where he excelled at detailed plant and animal observation and taxonomy. In all these areas, Aristotle's theories have provided illumination, met with resistance, sparked debate, and generally stimulated the sustained interest of an abiding readership.
Because of its wide range and its remoteness in time, Aristotle's philosophy defies easy encapsulation. The long history of interpretation and appropriation of Aristotelian texts and themes—spanning over two millennia and comprising philosophers working within a variety of religious and secular traditions—has rendered even basic points of interpretation controversial. The set of entries on Aristotle in this site addresses this situation by proceeding in three tiers. 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. Second are General Topics which offer detailed introductions to the main areas of Aristotle's philosophical activity. Finally, there follow Special Topics which investigate in greater detail more narrowly focused issues, especially those of central concern in recent Aristotelian scholarship
