Overview

Aristotle's Politics is widely recognized as one of the classics of the history of political philosophy, and like every other such masterpiece, it is a work about which there is deep division. Many readers of Aristotle are uncertain whether his Politics has any contribution to make to contemporary debates about political life and political theory. The essays in this volume aim to address, implicitly or explicitly, this very question about the relevance of Arisotle's thinking in contemporary political philosophy. Written by leading scholars in lucid and accessible style, the nine essays in this volume will be a critical resource for newcomers to Aristotle.

Editorial Reviews

Political Theory
The collection displays a wide range of methodological approaches to historical texts. 2007
Jill Frank
This fine collection of provocative essays by distinguished and theoretically diverse authors explores the contributions Aristotle's Politics makes to contemporary debates about political life and political theory. Keenly philosophical, historically nuanced, and often helpfully at odds with one another, these essays will be illuminating for all students of politics, ancient and modern.
Christopher Bobonich
This is a terrific collection of some of the best scholarship on Aristotle's Politics. It will be valuable for both students and researchers.
