Plato vs Aristotle

Natural philosophy poses questions such as “Where do we come from?” And “Why does this do this?”. It involves constant reasoning and explanations, but we must first know what natural philosophy is. It was the philosophical study of nature and the physical universe that was dominant before the development of modern science, and to Plato and Aristotle it was their lives. Plato was a philosopher who founded the Academy of Athens, known to some as Platonic Academy, which had the pleasure of teaching Aristotle. Although Aristotle was a student of Plato’s his views and ideas remain significantly different then his. The Greeks agreed more with Aristotle even though Plato had an entire school. Who was the better philosopher, if anyone was?
“To know the good is to do the good, and that knowing the right thing to do will lead to one automatically doing the right thing.”, said Plato. He believed wisdom was the basic virtue and that with it, someone could unite all the virtues into a whole. This is why, to Plato, virtue was all that was sufficient for happiness. “Knowing what was right is not enough, and that a person has to choose to act the right way.”, said Aristotle. Then he stated that yes wisdom was virtuous, but achieving virtue wasn’t automatic and definitely didn’t give any other virtues. He defended this by saying that “wisdom was a goal achieved only by effort, and that unless a person chose to think and act wisely, other virtues would remain out of reach.” Aristotle then knew that virtue was necessary for happiness, but was not sufficient by itself, needing social constructs to help a virtuous person feel satisfaction and contentment.
