Slide 1 - Group 5 Oral Report David Fasolino, Robert Frick, Dusty Robinson, Hilda Medina, Tamie Thompson, Angie Hambleton
Slide 2 - About Aristotle By Tamiane Thompson
Slide 3 - His early years Aristotle was born in stagria, on the border of Macedonia in 384 bce His mother, Phaestis, was from a family of doctors His father Nichomachus was court physician to King Amyntus of macedonia and this began his long association with the macedonia court which influenced his life greatly When he was still a boy his father died
Slide 4 - His schooling In 367, at the age of 17 his guardian,proxenus sent him to Athens, the intellectual center of the world, to complete his education He joined the academy and studied under Plato,attending his lectures for 20 years It was in later years that he began to lecture on his own account, especially the subject of rhetoric He was known for saying” He loved the truth more than he loved Plato and so he had no mind to remain a mere disciple”
Slide 5 - The years after Plato Plato died in 347 Aristotle would have been his rightful succeeded, however his divergence from Plato's teachings made it impossible In 347 Aristotle spent the next four years conducting zoological investigations on the islands of assos and lesbos He was married twice, his second wife Herpyllis bore him a son named,Nichomachus
Slide 6 - Back to Athens In 343 he was called to macedonia by King Philip to tutor the king’s son- the future alexander the great Seven years later Aristotle returned to Athens and founded the school Lyceum, which it’s ruins can still be seen today
Slide 7 - His teachings Aristotle taught in what later became known as Peripatetics meaning to walk about which he did often as he discoursed He is said to be given two type of lectures one in the morning for a inner circle of advanced students and one in the evening for the general body of lovers of knowledge He taught modern down-to-earth philosphy,biology, politics, and the rules of logic
Slide 8 - His writings Aristotle main works are the prior analytics (in which he describes the rules of logic)‏ The physics, the animal history, the rhetoric, the poetics, the metaphysics, the nicomachean ethics, and the politics Most of his writings are lost. What remains are his lectures notes, which were rediscovered in the first century and scholars are re-examining the fragments of his lost works.
Slide 9 - Aristotle in exile Aristotle connection to Alexander proved a liability in the end and on Alexander’s death in 323 b.c. the Athenians went on a rampage against all who associated with him The pro-Macedonian government was overthrown and he was charged with impiety he fled Athens He fled to Chalcis in Euboea where he quoted “the Athenians sin twice against philosophy referring of course to the unjust trial and death of Socrates”
Slide 10 - Aristotle’s death In his first year of his residence at Chalcis he complained of a stomach illness and died in 322 BCE A popular but again highly questionable story says he drowned investigating marine life however no one knows exactly what happened Aristotle’s philosophy, logic, science, metaphysics, ethics, politics, and system of deductive reasoning have been important ever since. In the middle ages, the church used Aristotle to explain its doctrines

Slide 12 - Poetics – In A Nutshell Dusty Robinson
Slide 13 - "The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead." Aristotle’s Poetics, written at about 335 BCE, is considered to be the first systematic critical theory in the world. For nearly 2,000 years it has inspired the thoughts of writers, philosophers and critics.
Slide 14 - “All men by nature desire knowledge.” Aristotle identifies tragedy as the most refined version of poetry, among the three genres (Tragedy, Epic, and Comedy)‏ Aristotle’s defines many key literary components such as mimesis (imitation), muthos (plot), anagnorisis (discovery), periperteia (reversal), hamartia (misjudgment), and catharsis (purifying or relieving of emotions).
Slide 15 - “Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.” Tragedy ... is an imitation of an action that is serious, complete, and of a certain magnitude; in language embellished with each kind of artistic ornament, the several kinds being found in separate parts of the play; in the form of action, not of narrative; through pity and fear effecting the proper catharsis of these emotions.
Slide 16 - "Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them." Poetics was not widely influential during it's time, but during the Age of Enlightenment, Aristotle's views shaped the concept of tragedy.

Slide 18 - Aristotle on Plot Angie Hambleton
Slide 19 - Types of Plot Simple Unified construct of necessary and probable actions to change future Complex peripeteia or reversal Anagnorsis or recognition The best way of presenting tragic pleasure
Slide 20 - Characteristics of Plot Unity of Action Necessity and probability Unity of Time Time by action understood by audience
Slide 21 - Aristotle’s Definition of Plot “The change of fortune from good to bad should come about as a result, not of vice, but some great error of frailty in character.”
Slide 22 - Works Cited
Slide 23 - Aristotle’s Tragic Hero By Hilda Medina
Slide 24 - What is a Hero Aristotle felt that the tragic hero was neither completely good nor completely evil. This hero will also be able to provoke our pity and fear.
Slide 25 - Our hero…… This hero also must have hamartia, which means a fatal flaw. The most common hamartia in Greek tragedies was pride.
Slide 26 - His Character Consistent: Our hero should repeatedly show the same traits through out the play. Lifelike: He should also appear as humanly as possible so we can relate to him.
Slide 27 - More on character Good: The hero would have to demonstrate through his speech and actions that he is morally sound. Appropriate: He would also have to maintain society's ideas on social behaviors (men should be manly and so forth).
Slide 28 - Our Hero’s Stature The hero was one of moral fiber that behaved nobly. This did not necessarily mean that the person was a king or queen but someone who behaved as one.
Slide 29 - Their Outcome Death: Although Aristotle did not fell that the hero should die (because it would provoke ill feelings in the viewers), some of the tragic heroes died. Lesson: Aristotle felt that the best outcome for the tragic hero would be to come out of the tragedy haven realized their error in judgment and gained a life lesson from it.

Slide 31 - Aristotelian Catharsis Robert Frick
Slide 32 - Catharsis – κάθαρσις Medicine - Purgation, especially for the digestive system. A purifying or figurative cleansing of the emotions, especially pity and fear, described by Aristotle as an effect of tragic drama on its audience. A release of emotional tension, as after an overwhelming experience, that restores or refreshes the spirit.
Slide 33 - Ancient κάθαρσις - Lustration Ritual cleansing with water Burnt offerings – purification through smoke Purges individuals or whole cities of crimes
Slide 34 - Aristotle's Catharsis Briefly touched on in Poetics Stirring up pity and fear, then dispelling them is the function of tragedy Promised a fuller explanation, but was probably lost to history with his book on Comedy.
Slide 35 - Jakob Bernays – Uncle of Sigmund Freud Classical interpretation comes from Bernays We build up undesirable emotions which are evoked and released through tragedy. These emotions are inherently negative.
Slide 36 - Another Interpretation… Aristotle believed emotions important for decision-making and character (Ethics)‏ Example: Too much fear = cowardly, too little fear = foolhardy Catharsis is not, then, elimination; it is the reduction of these emotions from excess to balance.
Slide 37 - Cathartic Relief in Literature “Agamemnon” ends with its namesake, his daughter, and his wife dead in a series of murders by one another. The Shakespeare's couple, Romeo and Juliet, lay dead in the end of their play. In Miller's All My Sons, Joe Keller, the father, commits suicide to relieve the burden he brought on his family.

Slide 42 - Orchestra: The orchestra (literally, "dancing space") was normally circular. It was a level space where the chorus would dance, sing, and interact with the actors who were on the stage near the skene. The earliest orchestras were simply made of hard earth, but in the Classical period some orchestras began to be paved with marble and other materials. In the center of the orchestra there was often a thymele, or altar. The orchestra of the theater of Dionysus in Athens was about 60 feet in diameter. Theatron: The theatron (literally, "viewing-place") is where the spectators sat. The theatron was usually part of hillside overlooking the orchestra, and often wrapped around a large portion of the orchestra (see the diagram above). Spectators in the fifth century BC probably sat on cushions or boards, but by the fourth century the theatron of many Greek theaters had marble seats. Skene: The skene (literally, "tent") was the building directly behind the stage. During the 5th century, the stage of the theater of Dionysus in Athens was probably raised only two or three steps above the level of the orchestra, and was about 25 feet wide and 10 feet deep. The skene was directly in back of the stage, and was usually decorated as a palace, temple, or other building, depending on the needs of the play. It had at least one set of doors, and actors could make entrances and exits through them. There was also access to the roof of the skene from behind, so that actors playing gods and other characters could appear on the roof, if needed. Parodos: The parodoi (literally, "passageways") are the paths by which the chorus and some actors (such as those representing messengers or people returning from abroad) made their entrances and exits. The audience also used them to enter and exit the theater before and after the performance.
Slide 43 - There were several scenic elements commonly used in Greek theatre: Machina, a crane that gave the impression of a flying actor (thus providing deus ex machina). Ekkyklema, a wheeled wagon used to bring dead characters into view for the audience Trap doors, or similar openings in the ground to lift people onto the stage Pinakes, pictures hung into the scene to show a scene's scenery Thyromata, more complex pictures built into the second-level scene (3rd level from ground)‏ Phallic props were used for satyr plays, symbolizing fertility in honor of Dionysus.
