Richard Dawkins makes the point that because you have “the privilege of living after Newton, Darwin, Einstein, Planck, Watson, Crick and their colleagues” that you could give Aristotle a tutorial “and you could thrill him to the core of his being”.

So, have a think and if you could go back in time and give the great Aristotle a tutorial from your current perspective of 2007, what would you reveal to him that would be a real knockout for old Ari?

  1. I thing that Ari would welcome the challenges that we face today if only to use his expertise. We have many new challenges and Ari would do his upmost to try and find the answers to these.

  2. I’m not a student of Aristotle , but I gather he had a marvelous intellect , conceptually brilliant mind , & was a great & astute thinker who constantly applied these skills to all facets of thinking in his day .

    So I guess what might excite Ari would be the history of the ever compounding of knowledge & thinking with time & how this tranlates into every field of endevour & into the hi tech tools that take us futher constantly.
