The Place of Mankind in Aristotle’s Zoology

Philosophical Topics 27 (1):1-16 (1999)
Historians of psychology often treat Aristotle’s De Anima as the first scientific treatment of their subject; and historians of biology do likewise with his zoological treatises. How are the investigations recorded in works such as the Parts of Animals and History of Animals connected to those in the De Anima? More specifically, given Aristotle’s views about man’s special and distinctive cognitive capacities, what does he think about man as an object of a distinctively zoological investigation? In the following pages, this more specific question will be explored, but with an eye to the way in which its answer may change the way we think about the broader question.
