Family: A, P, LH, Aq Aristotle: Male and female must unite for the reproduction of the species, not from the deliberate intention, but from the natural impulse, which exists in animals in general. Aristotle basically believes the whole point “is to leave something that has the same nature as us”. The union is necessary because it is preservation of both individuals. Aristotle gives his building block of the household: by nature men are superior to women. There is a a natural difference b/w men and women in terms of planning.
