Aristotle (Greek: Ἀριστοτέλης; 384–322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and scientist born in the city of Stagira, Chalkidice, Greece. He joined Plato's Academy in Athens at eighteen and remained there until the age of thirty-seven. His writings cover many subjects–including physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theater, music, rhetoric, linguistics, politics and government–and constitute the first comprehensive system of Western philosophy.
