From the lecture and textbook, write out the short quote that philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche made famous about truth. “There is no truth, only interpretations.” 5. From the textbook, describe how Raphael, in his great painting School of Athens , depicted Plato and Aristotle. Plato and Aristotle are depicted front and center, with Plato pointing up and Aristotle pointing horizontally. This indicates two ways of understanding truth. Plato's method points to God as the knower of all absolutes (ultimate truths are, therefore, present), while Aristotle's method indicates that truth is observed through interaction with the world and its circumstances and time period.
