Father of Zoology


Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher who was born in 384 BC at Stagira, Chalkidiki. He did his writings in many subjects like physics, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theatre, music, psychology, linguistics, economics, politics, government, and rhetoric.


 As we all know that any history of biology must start with Aristotle's zoology. His works were one of the studies of the natural world and more about ancient periods. His writings gave the true meaning for scientific history.

With his excellence in zoology, Aristotle gained the title ' father of zoology '. To modern humanity, his works might seem to be a little primitive but they are the most powerful ones. His work to find a quantum leap year was quite appreciable. His works can be considered as a perfect example of how we can make some work with careful observation.

Although many people contributed their party in the history of Zoology, Aristotle's part was most important. Aristotle who was a pupil of Plato interested in the natural world, but he made contributions in the field of zoology, natural history, and biology.

 Many of the scholars in those days concentrated about flora and fauna. But Aristotle was the one to use empirical methods and techniques in a pre-scientific method. Mainly for Islamic scholars, his works were the most useful ones.

Based on the study of Aristotle's work on Zoology, we have written about his paper works as follows :

Zoology is also known as Animal biology. It is a branch of science which studies about the animal kingdom. This includes the structure, embryology, evolution, classification, habits, and distribution of all animals which are both living and extinct. It also includes how they interact with the ecosystem.

Zoology is a word derived from the ancient Greek word in which Zooin means animal and logos means knowledge or study.
