What is Aristotle's greatest contribution to education?
He studied aesthetics, algebra, analytics, anatomy, astronomy, biology, economics, ethics, geography, geometry, logic, philosophy, physics, poetry, politics, psychology, rheto…ric, theology, and zoology just to name a few. But his most notable discoveries are those in physics and astronomy, such as his depiction of the universe and theories on time, movement and matter. In zoology, He was the first to distinguish between vertebrates and invertebrates. He also classified animals into classes, such as mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians. In meteorology, he was the first to describe the water cycle, which is: evaporation, condensation and precipitation. And in algebra he added systemized logic to the process of solving equations.
they both observed living thing's decided that any organism could be classified as either a plant or an animal. So they divided them them into groups depending on their differ…ences and similarities and gave all living things a specific name
Aristotle's contribution on development of systematic ichthyology was his development of taxonomy. He had accurate knowledge of fish anatomy and could distinguish aquatic …animals .
Aristotle's contribution to literary criticism is the idea that poetry is an art with an object of its own. Poetry can rationally understood and reduced to an intelligible… set of rules.
Aristotle makes philosophy coextensive with reasoning, which he also would describe as "science". Note, however, that his use of the term science carries a different meani…ng than that covered by the term "scientific method"

Aristotle is often regarded as the father of psychology, and his book, De Anima (On the Soul), the first book on psychology. He was concerned with the connection between the p…sychological processes and the underlying physiological phenomenon. Many believe he contributed more to prescience psychology than any other person, both qualitatively and quantitatively. Although Aristotle attended Plato's Academy, he became convinced of the need for empirical observations and criticized many of Plato's philosophies. Plato and Aristotle "represent a basic divergence in the way man and the world may be viewed, a modern parallel being the difference between the clinical and the experimental psychologist. (Zusne, p. 8)" Aristotle postulates that the body and the mind exist as facets of the same being, with the mind being simply one of the body's functions. He suggests that intellect consists of two parts: something similar to matter (passive intellect) and something similar to form (active intellect). Aristotle says that intellect "'is separable, impassible, unmixed, since it is in its essential nature activity. . . . When intellect is set free from its present conditions, it appears as just what it is and nothing more: it alone is immortal and eternal . . . and without it nothing thinks (Britannica Online, "Physiological Psychology")." Aristotle described the psyche as a substance able to receive knowledge. Knowledge is obtained through the psyche's capability of intelligence, although the five senses are also necessary to obtain knowledge. "As Aristotle describes the process, the sense receives 'the form of sensible objects without the matter, just as the wax receives the impression of the signet-ring without the iron or the gold.' (Britannica Online, "Physiological Psychology")." Sensitivity is stimulated by phenomenon in the environment, and memory is the persistence of sense impressions. He maintained that mental activities were primarily biological, and that the psyche was the "form" part of intellect. Aristotle insisted that the body and the psyche form a unity. This idea is known as hylomorphic. Aristotle believed that thinking requires the use of images. While some animals can imagine, only man thinks. Knowing (nous) differs from thinking in that it is an active, creative process leading to the recognition of universals; it is akin to intuition, it does not cause movement, and it is independent of the other functions of the psyche. (Zusne, pp. 8-9) Thomas Aquinas based many of his ideas on those of Aristotle, metaphysically interpreting them to make them fit his Christian theological framework. Thomistic psychology is still taught in Catholic schools today.
An education, for starters, is a privilege that not everybody gets to have. Without an education, you know nothing of the world outside, you know nothing about what you're sup…posed to DO in the world outside. You need education to get a good job; to get money! So I guess what I'm saying is, if you don't want to end up living on the streets... Stay in school.
One of Aristotle's most important contributions was defining and classifying the various branches of knowledge. He sorted them in to physics, metaphysics, psychology, logi…c, education, poetics and thus laid the foundation of most of the sciences of today. Aristotle contributed ethics as an important subject of philosophy.
Aristotle established the scientific method and added much to the studies of biology, zoology, and botany.
The advancement in education in the southern states of Nigeria, compared with the relative lag in the northern states, reflects the contribution of Christian missions to the N…igerian educational system. Teacher-training colleges are operated by missions or voluntary societies; their schools, however, are regulated and largely supported by the government. Generally the thorough establishment of education in Nigeria was based on ancient faith, where laws are mastered and learnt by heart. Nigeria being undermined by various political and generally economical challenges, majorly sparked into life in education when missionaries came into the nation. The Roman catholic was a major in this case, where through the spread of faith brought reading and writing to life. the need to be able to recite somethings, read the scriptures and the likes were major driving force to education, generally in the roman empire. The history of Nigeria education could be read from http://www.mongabay.com/history/nigeria/nigeria-education.html also from http://www.mapsofworld.com/nigeria/education Read more: http://www.nationsencyclopedia.com/Africa/Nigeria-EDUCATION.html#ixzz2W6tNnIcM Futhermore, I believe the idea of beating a child before he could understand came all the way through roman education. An article from history learning site (http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/roman_education.htm) Learning in Roman schools was based on fear. Boys were beaten for the slightest offense as a belief existed that a boy would learn correctly and accurately if he feared being caned if he got something wrong. For boys who continued to get things wrong, some schools had a policy of having pupils held down by two slaves while his tutor beat him with a leather whip. Children did not need to know why something was right - only to know that it was right and that they would escape a beating. please read more from the site So generally it could be observed that in most primary and secondary level of education especially in public schools beating is not scarce. But ultimately, the greatest impact it has made was the establishment of various schools and training college, and helping the community to realise the need to learn and write. and the mportance of being educated. Nigeria being what she is now was a result of some peoples' effort in bringing leaning to life through the use of various means, and also aided the belief of people in religion especially Christianity Furthermore, For the greeks impact on education in Nigeria, the introduction of schooling from 7 years and above before were some of the impact of greek educationIn the Athenian custom, the ancient Greeks homeschooled their children until their seventh year, in the poetic mode described elsewhere in this issue. Modern, progressive education pushes taking children from their homes earlier and earlier. The adoption of the German kindergarten model in this country stole one more year from the natural, early home formation of American children. Plans are afoot now to allow the schools to reach back even earlier to age 4, 3 and even 2 to take children from the loving culture of their homes. So "successful" are our public schools that they imagine more of the same will solve the very problems they have created.Classical elementary and secondary education is addressed in other articles in this issue, as is the "poetic" mode of educating via the senses, emotions and intuition. But lest we get lost in the details, it is important occasionally to remember the core of the classical, Socratic way of educating love. Also, Education wasn't an option for Romans and Greeks; it was both a tool and a necessity. Without education, neither of these cultures would have been what they were or remembered as they are today. Without education, neither of these cultures would have experienced the fame and success that they experienced during their individual time periods.About 200 BC, a Roman system of education developed which was different from the Greek tradition, but Romans borrowed some of the ancient Greek system of education. The Roman education system was based mainly on the study of Latin and Greek literature in order to produce effective speakers. School began each year on the 24th of March and there were three phases to a proper Roman Education: primary instruction, reading of literature (called grammar by the Romans), and formal schooling in rhetoric, but these three phases weren't for everyone because school wasn't free. For those that could afford to go to school, they had to first be educated at home. In early Roman days, a Roman boy's education took place at home. If his father could read and write, he taught his son to do the same. The father instructed his son in Roman law, history, customs, and physical training, to prepare for war. Reverence for the gods, respect for law, obedience to authority, and truthfulness were the most important lessons to be taught. Girls were taught by their mothers. Girls learned to spin, weave, and sew. Once boys and girls, with their father's permission to school, reached the age of 6 or 7, they were ready to begin the primary instruction part of the Roman education. In primary instruction, children studied reading, writing, and counting. They read scrolls and books. They were taught Roman numerals, and recited lessons they had memorized. At age 12 or 13, the boys of the upper classes attended "grammar" school, where they studied Latin, Greek, grammar, and literature.

Aristotle (384-322 BCE) was Plato's best student. He founded his own school called the Lyceum, and he was a tutor to Alexander the Great. He probably influenced …Alexander to spread Greek culture. His contributions to science include the scientific method, and various postulations in Physics (elements, motion, causality, optics, randomness/ chance). He also conducted investigations into (and writings on): geology, zoology, biology, and botany; he was also a great philosopher.

For Aristotle, democracy is not the best form of government. As is also true of oligarchy and monarchy, rule in democracy is for and by the people named in the government type…. In democracy, rule is by and for the needy. In contrast, rule of law or aristocracy (literally, power [rule] of the best) or even monarchy, where the ruler has the interest of his country at heart, are better types of government. Government, Aristotle says, should be by those people with enough time on their hands to pursue virtue. This is a far cry from the current U.S. drive towards campaign financing laws designed to make the political life available even to those without well-endowed fathers. It is also very different from the modern career politician who derives his wealth at the expense of the citizenry. Aristotle thinks rulers should be propertied and leisured, so, without other worries, they can invest their time in producing virtue. Laborers are too busy
