Aristotle (384-322 B.C.), was a Greek philosopher, born in Stagira, a Greek colony on the peninsula of Chalcidice, and educated under the Greek philosopher Plato. His father, Nicomachus, was physician to Amyntas 11, King of Macedonia, father of Philip, and grandfather of Alexander the Great. In Aristotle's seventeenth year he was sent to the school of Plato in Athens, where he remained for twenty years. On the death of Plato, Aristotle withdrew to Mysia and spent three years with Hermeias the "tyrant" of Atarneus, whose sister, Pythias, he afterward married. In 343-42 B.C. he was invited by Philip to Pelia, the capital of Macedonia, to take charge of the education of his young son Alexander (later called "the Great". When Alexander set out upon his Asiatic conquest, in 334 B.C., Aristotle, then in his fifteenth year, returned to Athens and opened in the Lyceum a school of philosophy. Here Aristotle taught for twelve years until, in the disturbed time following Alexander's death in 323 B.C., a charge of impiety was brought against him, and he fled to Chalcis, where Aristotle died.
