A student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great, Aristotle (384-322 BCE) was a Greek thinker whose work in the sciences, politics, logic, and ethics formed the foundation for all Western philosophy.

The bust of Aristotle shown here, from the collection of the National Museum of Rome, is a marble Roman copy of the original bronze done about 330 BCE by Lysippos, and a modern alabaster mantle added below.
