Aristotle: Father of Logic

“If we consider the fact that to this day everything that makes us civilized beings, every rational value that we possess—including the birth of science, the industrial revolution, the creation of the United States, even the structure of our language—is the result of Aristotle’s influence, of the degree to which, explicitly or implicitly, men accepted his epistemological principles, we would have to say: never have so many owed so much to one man.” Ayn Rand – For the New Intellectual

One thought on “Aristotle: Father of Logic

  1. Ayn Rand had her own favorite edition of Aristotle. I like the Loeb Classic Library editions because you can read the original Greek along with the translation to check the intended meaning.
