In contemporary schools we often imagine that all the natural sciences fit neatly together. Casual observers sometimes assume that the scientific approach offers a simple methodology which must only be applied in each subject.

It turns out that these disciplines are very different creatures. One subject deals in dissections and the other with derivatives. So what hath biology to do with physics? Come and find out how a return to Aristotle’s principles can simplify and help organize your school’s vision across the natural sciences as well as begin to reintegrate them with the humanities.
