Description

Written over two thousand years ago, Aristotle's celebrated work discusses the various benefits and dangers of the major political systems of his time: republic, democracy, aristocracy, oligarchy and tyranny, with a view to deciding which constitutes the ideal polity. Along the way, we are treated to discussions on a wide swathe of topics, from music and the role of women, through warfare, slavery and the education of children, to the responsibilities of a citizen, and what constitutes the 'good life' (for Aristotle: "to achieve happiness and pursue virtue"). Not all of the great Philosopher's conclusions chime with our modern ideas, but his penetrating, thought-provoking analyses will stir your mind, and surprise with their continued relevance.
