Aristotle considered his common sense and method as purposes of the Socratic wondering technique. particularly, good judgment was once initially a learn of solutions necessitated through previous solutions. For Aristotle, thought-experiments have been genuine experiments within the feel that by way of knowing varieties in one's brain, you could learn off their homes and interrelations. Treating kinds as autonomous entities, knowable one after the other, devoted Aristotle to his mode of syllogistic clarification. He didn't examine lifestyles, predication and id as separate senses of estin. Aristotle therefore serves as an instance of a philosopher who didn't depend upon the excellence among the allegedly diversified Fregean senses, thereby laying off new gentle on our personal conceptual presuppositions.
This assortment includes numerous remarkable interpretations that Jaakko Hintikka has recommend through the years, constituting a problem not just to Aristotelian students and historians of rules, yet to everybody attracted to common sense, epistemology or metaphysics and of their heritage.

We have thus found a partial vindication of Aristotle’s theory and an explanation of what clearly are its most puzzling overall features. Aristotle is not confusing diﬀerent distinctions with each other. He is in eﬀect pointing out important interrelations which obtain – on the view we are considering – between the diﬀerent distinctions (10)–(l1). Now we can see one reason why the formal model I sketched earlier is so interesting. It is interesting (among other reasons) because it embodies the traditional doctrine of the categories.
For instance, one corollary to what we found is that Aristotle’s category of relation is not the class of relations. It has to be a class of predicates (cf. (vi) above), and hence it is the widest class of relational predicates. A closer look at what Aristotle says readily conﬁrms this prediction. This fact is an instructive instance of a much more general feature which is characteristic of the Aristotelian doctrine of categories. It is not a distinction between entities of diﬀerent logical types.

(Cf. ) This of course goes against what a modern philosopher who learned his or her logic on Bertrand Russell’s knee would think ﬁrst. Nevertheless, it would be precisely the same mistake (same by analogy) as was committed by those philosophers who think of Aristotle’s category of relation as the supreme class of relations we may want to consider.
