Image from Aristotle Poetics

Aristotle met with approval from the Church, and was widely read by Renaissance scholars, who began to reinterpret his writings and concepts about the nature of matter and the origin of life itself. During the Enlightenment this would eventually lead to the transition from Alchemy to Chemistry and the obsession with anatomical development of the foetus. This edition of Aristotle's Poetics is published in Greek and Latin side by side.
