What Are the Works of Aristotle?June 26, 2021
While he was still working at Akademia, his works, which he published for a wide audience, mostly in the form of dialogue and within the framework of Plato’s philosophy, are his first researches. His writings on logic have long been collected under the name Organon (instrument).
They are called organon because they examine the question of method, hence the instrument that leads to scientific knowledge. Aristotle’s greatest achievement was his method of scientific study. Here are his writings on this subject: Categoriesai (Categories), Peri hermeneias (On the Proposition), Analytica I (On Syllogism), Analytica II (On demonstration, definition, classification and knowledge), Topika (On dialectical syllogisms) Peri sophistikon elegkhon (On the Sophists’ false inferences) on), Metaphysika (Metaphysics), Physika (Physics), Peri psykhe (on the Spirit). On the subject of morality, there are three works claimed to be Aristotle’s: Ethika Nikomakheia (Nicomachus Morality). His works on the philosophy of the state: Politics, Politeia Athenaion (state of the Athenians), Rhetorika (Oratory), Poetics (The doctrine of art).
