The Philosophy of Aristotle’s Biology
Aristotle is most well known as a philosopher. But he was also a scientist, and above all a biologist. In recent decades, readers of Aristotle the philosopher have come increasingly to acknowledge the extent to which his most celebrated contributions, from his ethics to his metaphysics, are indebted to the work of Aristotle the biologist. The seminars in this workshop will explore crucial connections between the work of Aristotle the philosopher and Aristotle the biologist, in an effort to bring out, for students and specialists alike, the biology of Aristotle’s philosophy as well as the philosophy of Aristotle’s biology.
