In this article, the writer looks at Aristotle's views of spontaneous generation. The following paper explores these beliefs by looking first at an article by James Lennox. The writer points out that in Lennox' article, he addresses some of the general criticisms often leveled against Aristotle on this point by his critics.

From the Paper:

"Few minds in history have been as brilliant as Aristotle's - especially in the areas of classification and typology. That being said however, Aristotle's explanation of spontaneous generation has sometimes incurred the wrath of scholars who believe it is not congruent with his general teleology and with his trademark emphasis upon causality."
