Aristotle (b. 384 - d. 322 BCE), was a Greek philosopher, logician, and scientist. Along with his teacher Plato, Aristotle is generally regarded as one of the most influential ancient thinkers in a number of philosophical fields, including political theory. Aristotle was born in Stagira in northern Greece, and his father was a court physician to the king of Macedon. Aristotle's famous words 'man is by nature a political animal' have attracted widespread debate and controversy for centuries. Standing the test of time, the statement draws on the uncomfortable debate surrounding individualism and collectivism, ringing uncomfortably in the ears of those who believe in 'every man for himself'.
