Aristotle Versus The Dichotomists

'Or, How I Learned To Appreciate On the Parts of Animals.'

Anika Prather at In Media Res.

"When I first read about the 'dichotomists,' I did not understand exactly why Aristotle did not agree with their approach to researching nature. But after reading it through — and some experiences actually looking at parts of animals — I began to see the value of Aristotle’s approach."

See Aristotle, Great Books of the Western World (first edition, 52 Vol., 1952) volumes 8-9, (second edition, 60 Vol., 1990) volumes 7-8.
