The school originally derived its name Peripatos (Greek: Περίπατος) from the peripatoi (περίπατοι, "colonnades") of the Lyceum in Athens where the members met. A similar Greek word peripatetikos (περιπατητικός) refers to the act of walking, and as an adjective, "peripatetic" is often used to mean itinerant, wandering, meandering, or walking about. Wiki read more hereAfter the death of Aristotle it became known that he was a "peripatetic" lecturer. All this meant was that he wandered around while he spoke and taught. Interesting word though with it being so close to sounding like someone was saying "Very Pathetic" with a lisp instead it is 'Peripetetic'.
