Aristotle Picture and Biography

Aristotle Picture and Biography


"I think that fiction and, as I say, history and biography are immensely important, not only for their own sake, because they provide a picture of life now and of life in the past, but also as vehicles for the expression of general philosophic ideas, religious ideas, social ideas." Aldous Huxley. IMG
"Biography always has fulfiled this role. Robinson Crusoe is a biography, as is Tom Jones. You can go through the whole range of the novel, and you will find it is biography. The only difference between one example and the other is that sometimes it's a partial biography and sometimes it's a total biography. Clarissa, for example, is a partial biography of Clarissa and a partial biography of Lovelace. In other words, it doesn't follow Lovelace from when he is in the cradle, though it takes him to the grave." William Golding. IMG
"If you read philosophical texts of the tradition, you'll notice they almost never said 'I,' and didn't speak in the first person. From Aristotle to Heidegger, they try to consider their own lives as something marginal or accidental. What was essential was their teaching and their thinking. Biography is something empirical and outside, and is considered an accident that isn't necessarily or essentially linked to the philosophical activity or system." Jacques Derrida. IMG
"All paid employments... absorb and degrade the mind." Aristotle. IMG
"A whole is that which has beginning, middle, and end." Aristotle. IMG
"Biographies are but the clothes and buttons of the man. The biography of the man himself cannot be written." Mark Twain. IMG
"But for a few phrases from his letters and an odd line or two of his verse, the poet walks gagged through his own biography." John Updike. IMG
"The soul never thinks without a picture." Aristotle. IMG
"People who attack biography choose as their models vulgar and offensive biography. You could equally attack novels or poems by choosing bad poems or novels." Claire Tomalin. IMG
