aristotelianism


Aristotelianism are philosophical systems, where the sages and scholars of the time base their hypotheses on Aristotle’s doctrine, these remained very present in antiquity, in medieval times, in the modern and contemporary age. Many have been the historians, who after innumerable studies and investigations, have classified Aristotelianism itself in different phases, among which the following can be highlighted:

Primary Aristotelianism, also considered as ancient Aristotelianism. The medieval and the Renaissance. Currently there could be some current that supports these same influences and that would be rooted in modern Catholic doctrine.

Within the so-called primary Aristotelianism, the philosophical system of Aristotle and his school, called Peripatetics, is included. Within it, great philosophers such as Andronicus of Rhodes stood out, who produced a critical publication of the works of his mentor. Theophrastus, who structured the doctrine of Aristotle, thus originating a naturalistic and scientific change to the school.

Over time, this ancient Aristotelianism developed until it reached medieval Aristotelianism, which was comprised of two very different stages: Arab and Christian Aristotelianism.

In the Renaissance Aristotelianism evolves and new sciences are created, which enter a period of conflict, some of them are astronomy and physics. The most representative exponents in this stage were: Martín Nifo, Cesar Cremonimo, Pedro Pomponazzi, etc.

Other of the great Aristotelian philosophers was Averroes, who fixed his idea of ​​the double truth, in order to match it to the thought of Aristotle, who affirms that the soul is completely mortal and also points out that God is not the creator of the universe, with the Islamic thought that affirms that God was the one who created the universe and that the soul of men is immortal.
