  • Plato vs. Aristotle• Aristotle differed from his teacher, Plato, in his emphasis on the supremacy of observation and on concrete reality. He sought to learn all that was possible about the reality perceivable by the senses, and the logic he developed was an effort directed at this end. He sought to develop a universal method of reasoning in order to learn everything possible about reality, and in his Categories he sets out a scheme to describe particular things by identifying them in terms of their properties, states, and activities.• Plato approached the issue of knowledge and found that ideas, as he used the term, are not only something in human consciousness but something outside it as well. Platonic Ideas are subjective and do not depend on human thought but exist entirely in their own right. They are perfect patterns that exist in the very nature of things. Such an idea is not just a human idea but the idea of the universe itself, so that the universe can express itself externally in concrete form or internally as a concept in the human mind at one and the same time. The Idea is the foundation of reality itself.

  • Venetian School• In the sixteenth century, artists such as Giorgione and Titian preferred a gentler, more sensuous approach to oil painting than had been adopted by the Florentine School. The Venetians used warm atmospheric tones.• Distant from the influence of the Papacy, Venetian artists did not shy away from controversial (erotic/pagan) themes.• Poetic (poesia) • Both Classical and Renaissance poetry inspired Venetian artists • This makes understanding the subject matter difficult 113
