Aristotle's claims that 'man is a political animal' and that political group 'exists for the sake of dwelling good' have often been celebrated by means of thinkers of divergent political persuasions. the main points of his political philosophy, although, have usually been considered as outdated, contradictory, or pernicious. This ebook takes at the significant difficulties that come up in trying to know how the crucial items of Aristotle's political proposal healthy jointly: can a belief of politics that turns out essentially inclusive and egalitarian be reconciled with a imaginative and prescient of justice that turns out uncompromisingly hierarchical and authoritarian? Riesbeck argues that Aristotle's principles concerning the specified nature and price of political group, political authority, and political participation are coherent and in line with his aristocratic criteria of justice. the result's a concept that, whereas no longer freed from difficulties, is still a almost certainly fruitful source for modern puzzling over the continual difficulties of political life.
