In the middle of the painting are Plato and Aristotle. Plato (left) holds a copy of his Timaeus, and gestures upward to the aetherial realm of his eternal forms – he pointed towards absolutes or ideals. In contrast, Aristotle (right) holds a copy of his Nichomachean Ethics, his hand is outstretched, fingers spread wide and thrust down toward the earth. He indicates with his gesture the worldliness, the concreteness, of his contributions to philosophy, emphasizing particulars.
