If nature has never provided an answer to this question, perhaps something is wrong with the question. The question is wrong indeed. It has no sense, for life in itself does not exist. No one has seen or mea

Aristotle Vs. Plato Learning Is Recollection What alternative does Aristotle offer to Plato\'s claim that learning is recollection? Where would Aristotle locate the mistake in Plato\'s argument in The Phaedo?

Hence to treat his masterpiece as ill-conceived futurology rather than a work of grea
