Aristoteles the teacher of Alexander the Great was on of the biggest anciently Greek progressive thinkers. Aristoteles lived from 384 to 322 BC and was born in Stageira; a small ionic city close to the East Coast of Chalkidike. The father of the great Greek philosopher, Nikomachos, was doctor of the Macedonian king Amyntas III, while his mother Phaestis as well originated from a respected family of physicians. Aristoteles was a student of Platon, but he showed himself not really convinced of the platonic expert opinion and alway searched for own models of thoughts and theses.
The official concept of the catholic church until today is characterised by philosophical ideas of Aristoteles. Aristoteles was considered apart from Socrates and Platon as one of the founder of the classically philosophical traditions of the Occident.
Still today the smart ancient thinker is quoted frequently. Here are some of his sayings:
"If love was ruling on the earth, all the laws would be dispensable."
"Friendship, that is one soul in two bodies."
"Everyone can be angry, that is simple. But being angry at the right person, in the right measure, to the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way, that is difficult."
