Aristotle’s Lagoon

I’ve just watched this rather excellent documentary about one of Aristotle‘s almost forgotten books – The Historia Animalium.  I say forgotten but he’s not really.  He’s forgotten by most scientists except those who learn a little about the history of the subjects. These days he’s mostly ignored outside of philosophy class.

Prof. Armand Leroi shows how Aristotle was far ahead of the game back in Ancient Greece.
