Ariscocles was a peripatetic philosopher who lived in the 1st Century AD.

Extensive fragments about epistemology survive from his writing, and they can change our thinking about the history of philosophy. Most people who have studied philosophy believe that there was what Ortega y Gasset called a turn to the subjective in the seventeenth century. Philosophers before this time focused on understanding the world, while philosophers after this time focused on understanding our ability to know the world.

Aristocles writing shows us that, in reality, many classical philosophies also focused on our ability to know the world. These classical philosophies anticipate many of the issues that have preoccupied modern philosophers, and they can give us a new perspective on these issues.
