the aim of this examine is to figure out Aristotle's perspective towards the content material and approach to Plato's common technology. Plato and Aristotle have usually been considered as on contrary aspects of a philosophic 'Great Divide'. however, those that have came across that the 2 males have been in contract have occasionally pointed out basically scattered circumstances of that contract. there's desire for a brand new comparability of the 2 thinker- one that is proscribed in scope, in accordance with the first texts, and that's systematic and thorough in strategy. If winning, any such comparability might convey into sharp concentration one section of Aristotle's reviews on Plato. Our try and meet this want is Aristotle's feedback of Plato's TIMAEUS. In pursuing this learn, it's been essential to reject a couple of uncritically-accepted interpre­ tations of the Timaeus. opposite to the view of many, now we have concluded that Aristotle mostly agreed with Plato, either within the ideas and presuppositions of his common technology. a couple of implications stem from this examine. there's, for instance, the oft-questioned demeanour during which Aristotle handled Plato's philosophy. within the nice majority of circumstances, Aristotle stands forth as a competent reporter and a talented critic. furthermore, the examine sheds mild on that old riddle: even if Plato and Aristotle are primarily akin or at odds of their normal philosophies.
