"Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all."
– Aristotle, ‘Rhetoric’ 4th century BC

Aristotle was born around 384 B.C. in the ancient Greek Kingdom of Macedonia, where his father was the royal doctor. He grew up to be arguably the most influential philosopher who ever lived, with many nicknames like ‘The Master’, or simply ‘The Philosopher’.
His first big teaching commission was tutoring Alexander The Great, to whom he taught his leadership skills. When Alexander the Great went out to conquer the whole of the known world, Aristotle headed off to Athens, to study under Plato for a while, until eventually branching out on his own. In 335 BC, he founded the Lyceum, the first scientific institute, based in Athens, Greece.
He was one of the strongest advocates of a liberal arts education, which stresses the education of the whole person, including one's moral character, rather than merely learning a set of skills. According to Aristotle, this view of education is necessary if we are to produce a society of happy, as well as productive individuals.
For Aristotle, philosophy was about practical wisdom being of service to society.
