Ancient Greeks: Aristotle on an Educated Mind
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought
without accepting it.
“Aristotle, (born c. 384 bce—died c. 322 bce), is a towering figure in ancient Greek philosophy, making contributions to logic, metaphysics, mathematics, physics, biology, botany, ethics, politics, agriculture, medicine, dance and theatre. He was a student of Plato who in turn studied under Socrates. He was more empirically-minded than Plato or Socrates and is famous for rejecting Plato’s theory of forms.” ~ Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Human nature has not changed over the millennia. The question is, do we learn from history?
We can’t possibly believe (accept) everything we hear. How else can anyone be objective unless they are able to compare at least two different, but related, thoughts or ideas?
That’s one of my thoughts. Care to share what you are thinking?
