Aristotle was a Greek philosopher in the 4th century BC.

In 2285, James T. Kirk responded to Saavik's observation that humor was a difficult and illogical concept by referencing a quote attributed to Aristotle: "We learn by doing." (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

In 2374, the Leonardo da Vinci-hologram said that even if Aristotle himself lectured him until exhaustion, he could not grasp the 24th century world with his 16th century knowledge. (VOY: "Concerning Flight")

Later that year, the USS Voyager encountered the fraudulent starship USS Dauntless. The ship had been altered to closely resemble a Starfleet creation, even including a Starfleet dedication plaque. The plaque quoted Aristotle: "Hope is a waking dream." (VOY: "Hope and Fear")
