Did you know that Aristotle's favorite animal was the cuttlefish? The ancient Greek philosopher may be best known for his contributions to Western philosophy, but his true passion - according to biologist Armand Marie Leroi - was the natural world and its inhabitants. In The Lagoon, Leroi considers Aristotle's contributions to science while following in his footsteps from Athens to Lesbos to Macedonia (and back again). Combining travelogue, ancient history, and science, this thought-provoking book provides a fresh perspective on the life, work, and legacy of Aristotle. Nature and Science December 2014 newsletter.
