The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation, rather than upon mere survival.
Aristotle (384–322 BC) was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist. His writings cover many subjects – including physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theater, music, rhetoric, linguistics, politics and government – and constitute the first comprehensive system of Western philosophy. He was Plato's student and Alexander the Great's tutor.
