“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence” – attributed to Aristotle
Along with Plato and Socrates, Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) is one of the triumvirate of philosophers responsible for the establishment of Western philosophy as it exists today. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were among the first to refine philosophical thought, including metaphysics, spirituality, and reason. Still, Aristotle was very much his own philosopher. Though he studied at Plato’s famous academy, he was not hesitant to counter or criticize Plato’s philosophical stances on certain issues.
This edition of Aristotle’s On Longevity and Shortness of Life is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of famous Greek philosophers.
