How much is known about Aristotle’s religion? Did he belive in God(s)?
Aristotle’s opinion on religion and the gods has been a topic of close study for millennia. In many of the texts of his that survive today we see that he often dismissed the traditional mythologies of the Ancient Greek culture, believing the stories to be illogical, fabricated, and impossible.
As with most things Aristotelian, it is not easy to discern what his exact beliefs were on the nature of god and religion, but it is true that he believed that if there was a higher power then it would be a being of thought, and one who focused on thinking about thought. His belief was that thinking is the highest form of activity of any being, and so the highest of being would be one who was entirely comprised of this action, and would only focus on this action.
