  • Description

    In Politics, the ancient Greek philosopher and scholar, Aristotle, gives an in-depth analysis of politics, government and constitutions.

    Summary Of The Book

    Aristotle’s Politics is among a handful of ancient works on political science which have continued to influence philosophers and political thinkers, including the likes of Machiavelli, to this day. The relevance of this great work is evident from the fact that it is still a part of the syllabus in many noted universities across the world.

    In Politics, Aristotle deals with all the important aspects of political science. It is, perhaps, the most significant work on politics and governance. Aristotle analyzes the various forms of government. With careful examination, he determines the strengths and weaknesses of each of these systems, and goes on to establish which are more effective in theory and in practice.

    Politics is divided into 8 sections. The topics Aristotle deals with the State and an Introduction to the Ideal State, Economic Classification of Constitutions, the Constitutions of Phaleas, Hippodamus, the Spartan, the Cretans, Distribution of Political Power, Justice and Equality, Kingship, Merits and Demerits of Various Constitutions: Democracy, Oligarchy, Aristocracy, Constitutional Change, Functions of the Constitution, Citizenship, and Education.

    Apart from throwing light on all these aspects of politics and governance, Aristotle’s Politics also throws light on the Greek life of the time, and the working of the ancient Greek city-state.

    This particular edition has an introduction by T. A. Sinclair and Trevor J. Saunders, where they discuss the effect of Politics on philosophers and political thinkers, Aristotle’s ideas and beliefs, and the relevance of this ancient text in modern times. The revised edition also has English and Greek glossaries, and a very useful bibliography.

    About Aristotle

    Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher, scientist, and scholar.

    His other works include Magna Moralia, Art Of Rhetoric, Metaphysics, On Respiration, On Dreams, Meteorology, Physics, On The Soul, Poetics, and Nicomachean Ethics.

    Most of his works had a profound impact on future studies, particularly in ethics, politics, and literature, and continue to do so. Aristotle was interested in various fields, and he researched and wrote on a wide range of topics, including politics, ethics, literature, physics, metaphysics, biology, and zoology.

    Aristotle was born in 384 BC in Stagira. Aristotle was Plato’s pupil, and studied at Plato’s academy in Athens for 20 years. After Plato’s death, he moved out of the academy. He then became the tutor of Alexander the Great. After tutoring Alexander for over 2 years, he returned to Athens to establish the Lyceum, his own academy and research institute. He died in 322 BC.

    Highly recommended

    Well, this books talks about different forms of government and how to establish them in a state without conflicts. And how to avoid corruption and conspiracy. This was similar to “Plato’s Republic” but more realistic than that.
