Logic[edit]

I believe we could improve the section about logic. It did not icluded what he did The "History" part is ok, and I don't really know anything about the topic to make comments on it. I believe, though, that the section called "Analytics and Organon" should be renamed "The Logical Treatises". Also, I think we should supress the word "aristotelian" in the sentence What we call today Aristotelian logic, Aristotle himself would have labelled analytics, for it just confuses: wouldn't Aristotle label as analytics any other philosophy of this kind? After listing the books of the Organon, we could mention that this corpus is called Organon.

Then, we could include a paragraph about syllogisms and another about dialetics, but not go to much into details, since this is the subject of the article about the Organon. Bhvilar 11:01, 7 May 2006

Missing chunk of information[edit]

i am new to wiki... and this is my first suggestion/post so please be merciful regardless of my editing or suggesting skills... i was getting help from this page, and found out that this page is missing a chunk of info about Aristotle's relation or his principals related to tragedy for instance Sophocles's Oedipus was said to be praised by Aristotle and said to be categorized with these 3 categories(?) hamartia,anagnorisis,peripeteia i had hard time looking for this deep stuff which i consider to be important. there is very little said about this in "Rhetoric and poetics" section but this needs to be specified and be said in this section due to it's importance. and also for wiki's sake :) [1] (i don't know if i did this right....)

Semi-protected edit request on 1 July 2015[edit]

Kindly include the following two interpretations of Aristotle and his philosophy in a more simplified and easy to understand manner. The interpretation is by an influential philosopher "Ayn Rand". She had studied and understood Aristotle and his philosophy and had the capability to interpret it objectively on its merits.

The second entry on Aristotle's early Platonism is unreliable, being out of date in Aristotelian studies at least since the works of Ingemar During on the argument (late sixties on the past century).

None of the Aristotle's scholars would believe today to an early platonism in Aristotle. Please allow revision or do revise yourself. Thank you

X mark.svg Not done I'm having a really hard time understanding what you want done. If you believe that the mention of Platonism is out-dated and should be eliminated, you would need to provide a source for that. -- Irn (talk) 23:01, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
