astronomy aristotle

"We must not listen to those who urge us to think human thoughts since we are human, and mortal thoughts since we are mortal; rather, we should as far as possible immortalize ourselves and do all we can to live by the finest element in us — for if it is small in bulk, it is far greater than anything else in power and worth."—Aristotle

Childhood and Adolenscence:)-It seems virtually certain that his physician father would have delivered him with his own hands.-His father was the father of Alexander the Great.-Both of his parents died when he was very young.-His mother died at a young age around 18 and his father definatly died in 367B.C.E.-at the age of 17, Aristotle left Proxenus' protection to become a student of Plato at the renowned Academy at Athens.

Type of education<3At the age of seventeen he became a member of the Greek philosopher Plato's school, where he stayed for twenty years. After Plato's death in 348 B.C.E. Aristotle taught philosophy, first at Atarneus in Asia Minor, then in Mytilene on the island of Lesbos. Then he became tutor of Alexander the Great at the court of Macedonia. In 335 or 334 B.C.E. he returned to Athens and founded a school called the Lyceum.

-Aristotles greatest contributions to Astronomy->The earth is spherical {because of: i) the circular shadow during the eclipses, ii) we can see the sail before the ship, iii) the height of stars is changing when we move}.>The earth is the center of the universe.

-His father was the royal physician.

-He moved to Athens at 17 because his father died before that and went to school there for 20 years at the Plato's Academy.

-He also opened his own school called Lyceum.

-After he got out of school he actually went on and became a teacher at the Plato's Academy.

- At Lyceum, Aristotle would give advanced lessons to a private circle in the morning, and in the afternoons he would hold more popular speeches to a larger crowd.
