Aristotle: Aristotle was, above all, motivated by the desire to know, a quest he accomplished by gathering data on everything from animals and plants to political constitutions and theatre plays. With an engineer-like or scientist’s mind, Aristotle quickly saw the patterns in the data, grouping everything by commonalities, properties, and overall structure. Using unsentimental rationality, Aristotle also applied these principles to humans, classifying them by temperament, gender, race, and various other properties with a level-headed shrewdness that caused his observations to be read and celebrated throughout the ages. As for happiness, Aristotle believed that it is best attained by doing what comes naturally to us and doing it well; in other words, to fulfill one’s purpose and become a paragon of human excellence.
