    • 2000 June, Nicholas Rescher, “Optimalism and Axiological Metaphysics” in The Review of Metaphysics LIII, № 4, § ii, page 812:
      It was thus a sound insight into the thought framework of the great Stagirite that led the anti-Aristotelian writers of the Renaissance, and later preeminently Descartes and Spinoza, to attack the Platonic/Aristotelian conception of the embodiment of value in nature and the modern logical positivist opponents of metaphysics to attach the stigma of illegitimacy to all evaluative disciplines.
