The Scientific Method

As introduced before, Aristotle offered something to the scientific world, and every academic world for that matter, something that is more valuable than anything that has ever been contributed to science before: how to actually conduct it. It was Aristotle that first defined and conducted empirical studies, studies with concrete evidence, purpose, and logic, being one of the first to offer the idea that reasoning (logic) and science are not mutually exclusive and should be intertwined when conducting accurate and reliable studies. The scientific method permeates almost every aspect of intellectual search and curiosity in general, and it is because of Aristotle’s adherence to the logic of identifying problems and solving them that it is possible to conduct the research that is conducted today.
