Aristotle's Phil. of Nature

Fall 2020

Taught By: Dmitri Nikulin

Section: A

CRN: 8746

Credits: 3

Facing the contemporary challenges of global warming and the overall destruction of nature, it is clear that we do not have a satisfactory modern account of nature. In this seminar, we will be discussing one of the historically most important philosophical investigations of nature, Aristotle’s Physics, as well as parts of his On the Heavens, with the hope of establishing a different perspective on nature, which might help us in addressing our current environmental catastrophe.
