Lyceum of Aristotle

Aristotle's Lyceum

Along with Plato’s Academy, Aristotle’s Lyceum is one of the oldest gymnasia (or philosophy schools) in Athens. Founded around 330 BC, it was only discovered in recent years, during the aborted construction of the Goulandris Contemporary Art Museum on that site. Aristotle taught here over a period of about twelve years, the most productive period of his life.
