By George S. Claghorn

the aim of this research is to figure out Aristotle's angle towards the content material and approach to Plato's average technological know-how. Plato and Aristotle have frequently been considered as on contrary aspects of a philosophic 'Great Divide'. nonetheless, those that have came across that the 2 males have been in contract have occasionally pointed out merely scattered circumstances of that contract. there's desire for a brand new comparability of the 2 thinker- one that is restricted in scope, in response to the first texts, and that's systematic and thorough in strategy. If profitable, any such comparability could carry into sharp concentration one part of Aristotle's reviews on Plato. Our try to 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 technological know-how. a few implications stem from this learn. there's, for instance, the oft-questioned demeanour within which Aristotle handled Plato's philosophy. within the nice majority of situations, Aristotle stands forth as a competent reporter and a talented critic. in addition, the research sheds mild on that historic riddle: even if Plato and Aristotle are primarily akin or at odds of their basic philosophies.
