  1. 1. Maharaja Krishnakumarsinhji Bhavnagar University Name:- Dave Mayuri Batch:- 2014-15 Class:- Sem 1 Roll No:- 15 Subject: Plato’s objection to Aristotle’s reply paper:- criticism Guided by:- Dr. Dilip Barad
  2. 2. Plato’s Objection & Aristotle’s Replies Aristotle was the great disciple of Plato, and it was he who took up the challenges of Plato show that poetry was not only pleasure but also useful for humanity Though Aristotle does not directly refer to Plato, yet much of the poetic is a covert reply to his great master. Aristotle suggest that poetry moulds the character of the individual. In contract to his master, he said that the poets or the artist world was not a shadow Of shadows, but a real world made more pleasant by the artistic vision.
  3. 3. Imitation is a creative process. The poet while imitating reality tranforms it into Something new and much higher. Aristotle brought the emotions within the range of imitation. Plato linked poetry to painting. Aristotle linked it to music. According to Plato, poetry imitates only surface appearances, as does a painter.
  4. 4. While the Aristotle poetry imitates not only the external but also internal emotions and experience. In Plato's views poetry present a copy of nature as it is. Poetry is not concerned version of reality. Thus the two differ widely in their views on poetic truth. Aristotle takes up the objection of Plato one by one and justifies poetry morality immorality and intellectually. We get no corresponding theory in Plato.
  5. 5. Plato had taken up the cudgels on behalf of philosophy, and his purpose was to show their philosophy. And his purpose was to show that philosophy is superior replace poetry in schools. Aristotle on the other hand takes of the cudgels on behalf of poetry. And effwctively brings out its superiority. In his view poetry is to preferred both to history and philosophy.
  6. 6. Thank you…..
