Example text

Or what about this one - 55 words, again in the subjunctive mood, and again imposing an irresistible involvement: What woman having ten pieces of silver if she lose one piece would not light a candle and sweep the house and seek diligently till she find it? And when she have found it she calleth her friends and her neighbours together saying 'Rejoice with me for I have found the piece which was lost'. Miracles And then, of course, there were the miracles and wonders which were central to the teaching of the message.

Aristotle's political vision appears to be similar to Plato's with regard to the similarity between justice in the individual and in the state. Men, he tells us, have the same ends whether they are acting as individuals or as a community. The best man (the aim of education) and the best constitution (the aim of politics) must have the same definitive purpose. Education Education must take account of three realities which circumscribe human development: nature, habit and intellect. Nature is outside the control of the educator: it is a function of geographical location and climate and there is little that can be done to modify its effects.

He advocates a moderate approach to the care of infants and young children: they should not be mollycoddled but neither should they be subjected to the full rigour of an athletic training. Throughout his writing on education, Aristotle is at pains to emphasize that there should be no excess in the education of the young aristocrat. In the case of physical fitness, for example, the aim is not to generate the physical fitness needed by an athlete but that needed by the citizen for health and the production of offspring.
