These can then be used to develop a definition that states the essence of the living thing—what makes it what it is and thus cannot be altered; the essence is, of course, immutable. The model for this procedure is to be seen in mathematics , especially geometry, which fascinated the Greeks. Mathematics seemed to them the type and exemplar of perfect knowledge, since its deductions from axioms were certain and its definitions perfect, irrespective of whether a perfect geometrical figure could ever be drawn. But the Aristotelian procedure applied to living things is not by deduction from stated and known axioms; rather, it is by induction from observed examples and thus does not lead to the immutable essence but to a lexical definition.
Although it provided for centuries a procedure for attempting to define living things by careful analysis, it neglected the variation of living things. Aristotle and his pupil in botany, Theophrastus , had no notable successors for 1, years. In about the 12th century ce , botanical works necessary to medicine began to contain accurate illustrations of plants, and a few began to arrange similar plants together.
Encyclopaedists also began to bring together classical wisdom and some contemporary observations. After this time, work in botany and zoology flourished.
John Ray summarized in the late 17th century the available systematic knowledge, with useful classifications. He distinguished the monocotyledonous plants from the dicotyledonous ones in , recognized the true affinities of the whales, and gave a workable definition of the species concept, which had already become the basic unit of biological classification.
He tempered the Aristotelian logic of classification with empirical observation. You are using an outdated browser.
