Aristotle’s and Newton’s Views
Aristotle and Newton are known for how they view the universe. Aristotle is a scientist, and Newton is a mathematician and physicist. They have created theories about why and how objects move. Aristotle believes objects move because of elements, such as fire, water, air, and earth. For example, when there is a forest fire, the smoke goes toward the sky because it is grey air heading towards air. Newton believes that objects move because they are being pushed or pulled toward something. For instance, a basketball is rolling down the driveway, the ball will stop when it hits something, or it will stop if you pick it up. Both scientists are from two different time periods and have very different point of views.
