Reading Day at the New York Historical Society

On Friday, December 10, 2021, the philosophy and history departments teamed up to bring a group of students to the New York Historical Society on Reading Day to see the exhibit Aristotle: From Antiquity to the Modern Era. The exhibit featured early modern manuscripts of some of Aristotle’s most important works on physics, metaphysics, logic, ethics and politics.
