the aim of this research is to figure out Aristotle's angle towards the content material and approach to Plato's typical technological know-how. Plato and Aristotle have frequently been considered as on contrary facets of a philosophic 'Great Divide'. nonetheless, those that have chanced on that the 2 males have been in contract have occasionally pointed out merely scattered circumstances of that contract. there's desire for a brand new comparability of the 2 thinker- one that is restricted in scope, in response to the first texts, and that's systematic and thorough in strategy. If winning, this sort of comparability might convey into sharp concentration one part of Aristotle's reviews on Plato. Our try and meet this desire is Aristotle's feedback of Plato's TIMAEUS. In pursuing this examine, it's been essential to reject a few uncritically-accepted interpre­ tations of the Timaeus. opposite to the view of many, now we have concluded that Aristotle mostly agreed with Plato, either within the ideas and presuppositions of his usual technological know-how. a couple of implications stem from this research. there's, for instance, the oft-questioned demeanour within which Aristotle handled Plato's philosophy. within the nice majority of circumstances, Aristotle stands forth as a competent reporter and a talented critic. additionally, the examine sheds gentle on that old riddle: no matter if Plato and Aristotle are essentially akin or at odds of their common philosophies.
