Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive April 2006: Homework help - aristotle

Ds has to do a 3 page report on the life of Aristotle. I am sure we can find info on the internet about him, but he also needs to have a library source. Any book title suggestions that wouldn't be to over the top for a middle schooler?

Not offhand, but I bet you could do a search on Amazon and find one that would work...

See if you can get a copy of Exploring Creation with General Science by Dr. Jay L. Wile. It's what we've used this year for Robin's science curriculum. There's a section of chapter one (history of science) about Aristotle. Here's a link to a site with the book so you know what you're looking for. If you can't find it let me know and I'll see if I can maybe email or fax you the pages about him. cathyliz at bigfoot dot com

When you go to that site, click on the link on the left under books that says "General Science".

This is my new favourite subject! I've become a philosophy nut.

This isn't exactly an internet source so take a listen to this, http://www.philosophytalk.org/pastShows/Aristotle.htm. 'Philosophy Talks' is a great NPR show out of Stanford and all their past episodes are downloadable for Real Player. That links gets you to a show they did on Aristotle.

It's probably not valuable in terms of his report but the show always has interesting discussions that may spark an interest.

Also, look for some books on Alexander the Great and Plato (his pupil and student respectively) and you may find something, esp. with Alexander that you can use and is geared more towards his age.
