A springlike coastal landscape in Chalcidice, Greece. Chalcidice was the birthplace of the Greek philosopher Aristotle. He was widely credited with founding the field of philosophy. His work has had a pervasive impact on human knowledge over the past two thousand years. Aristotle's beliefs were well-received in the east, where Muslim scholars drew inspiration from his works. His writings in ethics, physics, metaphysics, political philosophy, and natural science continue to be consulted as a source of philosophical guidance today.
