March 21–25: Aristotle Week

UA, Aristotle University Collaborate to Celebrate Aristotle’s 2,400th Birthday

Everything has a foundation.

And much of the foundation that modern science and the philosophy of logic is built upon is the work of Greek philosopher Aristotle, who turns 2,400 years old this month.

To pay tribute to his contributions, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization, or UNESCO, has declared 2016 as Aristotle Anniversary Year.
