Welcome

The main purpose of this site is to acquaint ourselves with Aristotle’s work through articles that refer to his philosophy and indicate the beauty and breadth of his insight.

Our site, we might say, is nothing but a little step towards the realization of a noble cause: the preservation of the wisdom of our ancestors — and in particular of the Aristotelian one —  and, if possible, its continuity through our discourses.

Our articles, which are inspired with his discourses and elaborated by ourselves, bring the listener close to his philosophy reminding him not only of its timelessness but also of its necessity.

We hope you embrace and at the same time support our effort.

On Fate

The book in question (available in Greek only) is a philosophical work on the subject of fate.

It contains parts of the works of Aristotle, Alexander, Philoponus and other wise men of antiquity, that is, the thoughts of these great men compounded in such a way, so that, with the addition of ours, they make up an integrated work — and it is written in ancient Greek too!

It may be the only one of its kind, since it rests not only on the interpretation or explanation of the various terms and concepts, or even the translation of a certain work of Aristotle, but it goes even further and is trying, we might say, to recompose his belief in the matter of fate, since Aristotle has not written or, if at all, no work of Aristotle regarding fate is saved so far.
