Modern literature offers abundant materials for testing Aristotle鈥檚 theory, and the immense majority of critics have decided against it. Even among fairly educated readers few would prefer Moli猫re鈥檚 L鈥櫭﹖ourdi to his Misanthrope, or Schiller鈥檚 Maria Stuart to Goethe鈥檚 Faust, or Lord Lytton鈥檚 Lucretia to George Eliot鈥檚 Romola, or Dickens鈥檚 Tale of Two Cities to the same writer鈥檚 Nicholas Nickleby, or his Great Expectations to his David Copperfield, although in each instance the work named first has the better plot of the two. So also with Aristotle. As a naturalist, he is, indeed, purely objective; but when he offers a general explanation of the world, the subjective element introduced by Protagoras and Socrates at once reappears. Simple absolute self-consciousness is for him the highest good, the animating principle of Nature, the most complete reality, and the only one that would remain, were the element of nonentity to disappear from this world. The utter misconception of dynamic phenomena which marks his physics and astronomy can only be accounted for by his desire to give life the priority over mechanical motion, and reason the priority over life.
