Product details

Philosopher, educator, scientist and tutor to Alexander the Great, Aristotle was born in Stageira in 384 B.C., in what was then the kingdom of Macedonia. At the age of seventeen he initiated his studies at the Academy of Plato in Athens - culminating in a twenty-year association with the institution - to then ultimately establish his own Athenian school and research institute, the Lyceum. The general state of anti-Macedonian sentiment following the death of King Alexander in 323 B.C. resulted in driving Aristotle into exile to Chalcis, Euboea, where he died a year later. His output as philosopher includes numerous influential writings, but namely Ethics, Politics, The Athenian Constitution, De Anima, The Art of Rhetoric, Poetics and The Metaphysics. 'Aristotle's Rhetoric' is a seven movement work for orchestra based on the writings of Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 BC). Each of the seven sets of opposite emotions outlined in book two of his rhetorical manual 'The Art of Rhetoric'- anger and calmness, friendship and enmity, fear and confidence, shame and shamelessness, kindness and unkindness, pity and indignation, envy and emulation - represented within an individual movement.
