Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Funny you should mention Aristotle.  In a longer version I went into detail about syllogistic logic as an old, fairly restricted, but still useful tool.

I get the feeling that most of the heavy breathing about relativity, uncertainty, etc. is an archaic thinking not unlike a belief that all portraits must be painted in oils.

The demand for certainty is the hallmark of an immature mind. it would be nice if everything could be put into little boxes labeled 'True' or 'False' but that's not the way it is.  

She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
