Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Politics is one of Aristotle's most important works, having had an inestimable influence on political thought up until the present day. This volume provides a clear and accurate translation of the first two books together with helpful philosophical commentary.

Synopsis:

A key document in the history of Western political thought, "Politics" raises and discusses many theoretical and practical political issues which are still debated today. This volume contains an English translation of the first two books, together with philosophical commentary.

Synopsis:

Aristotle's Politics is a key document in Western political thought. In these first two books Aristotle shows his complete mastery of political theory and practice, and raises many crucial issues still with us today. In Book I he argues vigorously for a political theory based on 'nature'. By nature, man is a 'political animal', one naturally fitted for life in a polis or state. Some people, however, are natural slaves; and women are by nature subordinate to men. Acquisition and exchange are natural, but not trading for profit. In Book II he launches a sharp attack on Plato's two 'utopias', the Republic and the Laws, and also criticizes three historical states reputed to be well governed: Sparta, Crete, and Carthage. This volume contains a close translation of these two books, together with a philosophical commentary. It is well suited to the requirements of readers who do not know Greek.
