§ 2. THE PHILOSOPHICAL SCHOOLS OF THE THIRD AND SECOND CENTURIES B.C.
60. The Peripatetic School. -- This school, sprung from the teaching of Aristotle, gave its attention for two centuries to logic, ethics, and physics. It gravitated steadily towards naturalism, so much so that STRATO OF LAMPSACUS (fl. 270) identifies God with phusis and denies finality. The development which this school underwent from the first century B.C. is of greater historical importance (174).
