Aristotle, with his common sense approach to problems, frequently states the seemingly obvious. He makes points which on the surface don't seem revolutionary, but they are shrewd and insightful enough to crystalize truths ...

Victor Buono stars as Socrates in this educational film (apparently) produced for an Encyclopedia Britannica series called 'Man and the State'. It dramatizes the philosopher's trial and execution, drawn primarily from Plato's 'Apology', and also includes a brief scene referencing Aristophanes' mockery of Socrates in 'The Clouds'. This film was definitely a low-budget affair, but it looks good for what it is. Buono's portrayal is thoughful and subdued, so don't expect any of the bombastic delivery he brought to the 1960's Batman tv show...
The most popular Hollywood scriptwriting skills teacher – Robert McKee has arrived to Moscow. He is travelling around the world, teaching people how to improve their script writing skills. Mr. McKee gave an exclusive interview to Voice of Russia. Robert McKee is famous for his seminar called “Story” which first began in 1984. Since then, thousands of students worldwide have dreamt of improving their script writing skill specifically under McKee’s guidance.
A bit later, in 1997, his book “Story” was published, however in Russia it’s called “Two million dollar story. Master-class for screenwriters, writers, and not only”. The manual became a bestseller immediately and has been translated into 20 languages.
Robert McKee told “Voice of Russia” his success secrets.
In the Russian VGIK screenwriting skills are taught for 5 years. But how much time do you think you need to become a screenwriter.
In order to become a real writer, real author - you need 10 years. It’s 10 years of defeats, it is 10 years of scripts, that no one needs. 10 plays, which nobody wants to stage. 10 novels, which nobody wants to read. And maybe, in 10 years you will achieve a success. Perhaps, in five years, you can get educated, but in order to become a writer will need much more time.
It is said that there are just several scripts. Aristotle highlighted four forms. Do you follow them?
Yes, indeed. Aristotle pointed out four forms "tragic ending, happy ending, complex and simple. Two thousand years have passed since then and we have developed the system. Now I underline 24 genres. But in spite this the set is limited to - fantasy, horror, love, detective, and military history. So, just couple of dozen of genres.
Throughout the history of philosophy, Poetics of Aristotle has been considered by many figures including Avicenna. Iranian expert of art’s philosophy Iraj Dadashi is currently editing and translating the work into Persian.
These differences between Plato and Aristotle–philosophical and temperamental–are best exhibited by Aristotle's devastating criticism of Plato's theory of forms. For Plato, as we have seen, the immutable, eternal forms ...
Unlike Plato and the early Platonists who posited two causes (Greek αἴτιον, aition), namely form and matter, Aristotle posited four causes. Aristotle's argument against Plato regarding this topic is in Book 1 of his Metaphysics.
One of the differences between the casual student of history and the true intellectual historian is that the latter recognizes that often much more important than what people argue is how people argue.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz Ari (Aristotle) and Dante meet in the summer of 1987 when they are both fifteen years old. In most ways, they are very different.
In the 4th century BC the Greek philosopher Aristotle traveled to Lesvos, an island in the Aegean teeming, then as now, with wildlife. His fascination with what he found there, and his painstaking study of it, led to the birth of a new science – biology. Professor Armand Leroi follows in Aristotle’s footsteps to discover the creatures, places and ideas that inspired the philosopher in his pioneering work. A film that examines Aristotle’s discoveries about nature on the island of Lesvos and how they influenced his views on human biology. Watch the full documentary now (playlist – 1 hour)
"The Basic Lexicon of Ancient Greek comprises an electronic database, which is composed by the Lexicography Division of the Centre for the Greek Language and is supplied progressively with new entries. The compilation of a reference lexicon with the basic vocabulary of Ancient Greek at its core is designed to meet the needs of teaching Ancient Greek from the original at the secondary school level.
The contents of the Basic Lexicon consist chiefly of Attic prose (historiography, rhetoric, and philosophy), and a number of lyric and dramatic poetry texts, as these are taught in secondary schools. However, a "Canon of Authors" has also been created to offer a more effective and comprehensive documentation of meanings. This encompasses the basic genres of poetic (epic, lyric, dramatic) and prose discourse (historiography, philosophy, rhetoric), covers the period from Homer to Aristotle, and includes most of the authors taught at the secondary and university levels. The Canon also constitutes the wider collection of reference texts on the basis of which meanings are attested in the Lexicon.
Το Βασικό Λεξικό της Αρχαίας Ελληνικής αποτελεί μια ηλεκτρονική βάση δεδομένων, η οποία αναπτύσσεται από το Τμήμα Λεξικογραφίας του Κέντρου Ελληνικής Γλώσσας και τροφοδοτείται σταδιακά με νέα λήμματα-άρθρα. Το Βασικό Λεξικό συντάσσεται με άξονα το βασικό λεξιλόγιο της αρχαίας ελληνικής γλώσσας και σκοπεύει να καλύψει τις διδακτικές ανάγκες των Αρχαίων Ελληνικών από το πρωτότυπο στη Μέση Εκπαίδευση. Αντικείμενο του Βασικoύ Λεξικού είναι κυρίως η αττική πεζογραφία (ιστοριογραφία, ρητορική και φιλοσοφία) και ορισμένα κείμενα της λυρικής και δραματικής ποίησης, όπως αυτά διδάσκονται στη Μέση Εκπαίδευση. Για να είναι, όμως, αποτελεσματικότερη και πιο σφαιρική η τεκμηρίωση των σημασιών, συγκροτήθηκε ένας Κανόνας συγγραφέων, που καλύπτει τα βασικά είδη του ποιητικού (έπος, λυρική ποίηση, δραματική ποίηση) και του πεζού λόγου (ρητορική, ιστοριογραφία, φιλοσοφία), αφορά την περίοδο από τον Όμηρο ως τον Αριστοτέλη, και περιλαμβάνει τους περισσότερο διδασκόμενους συγγραφείς στη Μέση και την Ανώτατη Εκπαίδευση. Ο Κανόνας συγγραφέων αποτελεί και το ευρύτερο σύνολο κειμένων αναφοράς βάσει των οποίων τεκμηριώνονται οι σημασίες στο λεξικό"
A once-banned book on sex and pregnancy from the 18th century is expected to fetch up to £400 when it goes on sale in Edinburgh next week.
Aristotle’s Complete Master-Piece is a manual which is thought to have provided information for amateur midwives and young married couples about pregnancy and sex. It is up sale at Edinburgh auction house, Lyon & Turnbull on 9 January, where it is expected to reach up to £400.
Despite its title, the manual has little to do with Greek philosophy according to Lyon & Turnbull’s book specialist Cathy Marsden.
Instead, the anonymous author of the Master-Piece offers dubious 17th century advice - it was first published in 1684, cobbled together from the works of Nicholas Culpepper, Albertus Magnus and, Marsden says, “a good dose of old wife’s tale”.
