Neither Plato nor Aristotle had a profound knowledge of astronomy, but they adopted the geocentric system because it was in better agreement with their philosophical beliefs, and their preference for a pro-slavery society. Their cosmology was subordinated to their political and philosophical ideas: they separated mind from matter and the Earth from the sky.
