Named for Aristoteles (384-322 B.C.), one of the most significant Greek philosophers, charging the demerits of his philosophy on the level of the knowledge at his era and ascribing the misuse of his ideas to human weakness. He was the first, and possibly the greatest, theoretician of the mechanism of thought and deduction, being at the same time well aware of the importance of what happens in the real world and in nature.
