Aristotle is one of the most famous and influential philosophers. His work on logic, metaphysics, politics, and ethics were all pioneering, sowing the seeds of much later philosophical thought. But almost two and a half millennia later, could this rebellious student of Plato possibly have anything to say about the complexities and concerns of modern life? We explore whether Aristotle can still usefully inform our thinking today, on everything from sex and friendship to animals and politics.

About the author

Forum for Philosophy

Forum for Philosophy is a non-profit organization promoting philosophy. We host events, produce podcasts, and publish an essay series to showcase the work of contemporary academic philosophers from all philosophical traditions, often in conversation with each other and with academics from other disciplines. In all of our activities, we promote thought-provoking discussion of science, art, and politics from a philosophical perspective.
