Avicenna the greatest polymath of his time(980-1037 A.D.) was called Aristotle's Bulldog because of the below quote:

"Those who deny (Aristotle's) first principle should be flogged or burned until they admit that it is not the same thing to be burned and not burned, or whipped and not whipped." - Ibn Sina (Avicenna)

Aristotle described his first principle with the below quote:

"In every systematic inquiry where there are first principles, or causes, or elements, knowledge and science result from acquiring knowledge of these; for we think we know something just in case we acquire knowledge of the primary causes, the primary first principles, all the way to the elements" -Aristotle
