It is not simply as the teacher of Alexander the Great that Aristotle is to be remembered in the history of education, though that would entitle him to lasting fame. After the education of Alexander was finished, Aristotle went to Athens, where he founded the Lyceum. Here he lectured for many years, in the morning to his riper pupils on philosophical subjects, and in the evening to the masses on such topics as were within their comprehension and as would tend to elevate them. His pedagogy may be briefly outlined as follows:-1.

Marcus Aurelius, called "the philosopher on the throne," in his "Meditations" gave expression to most lofty thoughts, showing keenest self-examination and obedience to conscience. His moral teachings are among the noblest of all the writers of antiquity. " This is a very complete, just, and discriminating treatment of Cicero and his relation to the times in which he lived. [23] "Life of Cicero," Vol. I, p. 30. [24] Vol. II, p. 213. [25] Vol. II, p. 317. D. D. 95 to 120. D. D. 95 as he lived to a ripe old age.

Royal recognition was not without effect upon the fortunes of Quintilian, as it placed him in the front rank of the teachers of Rome. This, together with his subject, the teaching and mastery of which were considered by the Romans to be the climax of education, enabled him to wrest supremacy from the Greek teachers who so long had enjoyed a monopoly of teaching in the city. When fifty-three years of age, Quintilian retired from his school, and devoted himself to authorship.
