- From Latin peripatēticus, from Ancient Greek περίπατος (peripatos, "strolling, covered walk, conversation while walking"), from περιπατέω (peripateō, "I walk around"), from περί (peri, "around") + πατέω (pateō, "I walk"). Aristotle’s school was sometimes called the περιπατητικοί "those who are prone to walking" or οἱ ἐκ τοῦ περιπάτου "those from the walk" in reference either to his supposed habit of teaching while traversing the περίπατοι (peripatoi, "walkways") of the Lyceum or simply to the walkways themselves with which the school became associated.
