ARISTOTLE, Macedonia, Greece (384–322 BCE)

Born in Macedonia, Aristotle immigrated to Athens to study philosophy and ended up questioning the authority of his teacher, Plato. In Athens he lived without citizenship and was subjected to anti-Macedonian sentiment. After Alexander’s death, Demophilus and Eurymedon accused Aristotle of impiety, and he fled North to his mother’s place of birth because he didn’t want Athens to put another philosopher to death.
