The Athenian Constitution [NOOK Book]

Overview

Ancient accounts of Aristotle credit him with 170 Constitutions of various states; it is widely assumed that these were research for the Politics, and that many of them were written or drafted by his students. Athens, however, was a particularly important state, and where Aristotle was living at the time; it is plausible that, even if students did the others, Aristotle did that one himself, and possible that it was intended as a model for the rest.

Overview

Ancient accounts of Aristotle credit him with 170 Constitutions of various states; it is widely assumed that these were research for the Politics, and that many of them were written or drafted by his students. Athens, however, was a particularly important state, and where Aristotle was living at the time; it is plausible that, even if students did the others, Aristotle did that one himself, and possible that it was intended as a model for the rest. However, a number of prominent scholars doubt that it was written by Aristotle. If it is a genuine writing of Aristotle, then it is of particular significance because it is the only one of his extant writings that was actually intended for publication. Because it purports to supply us with so much contemporary information previously unknown or unreliable, modern historians have claimed that "the discovery of this treatise constitutes almost a new epoch in Greek historical study."

Meet the Author

Aristotle was born in Macedonia in 384 bc. For twenty years he studied at Athens in the academy of Plato, before becoming tutor of the young Alexander the Great. When Alexander became king of Macedonia in 336, Aristotle returned to Athens and founded his own school and research institute, the Lyceum. Aristotle fled to Calcis in 323 in the aftermath of Alexander's death, where he died a year later. P J Rhodes is Professor of Ancient History at Durham University, and is a Fellow of the British Academy. His major work is Commentary on the Aristotelian Athenation Politeia.

    Cypher - All.



    Ok so my da&lt;_&gt;mn tablet broke and I am currently unable to speak to you guys. I'm using a computer and will do my best to speak with anyone today if you want but Rayne you need to tell Max that I won't be on for a while. and if Sun ever gets back on then you know to tell her to go to our book. As for the rest of you, I hope you all have a great time while I'm gone. PS ~ Rayne, keep this place in order so that I have something to look forward to when I come back.

    the athenian constitution

    the athenian constitution was very interesting as part of a study of the history of democracy as it unfolded in ancient greece. some may be disappointed that a morjority amoung 5000 was the penultimate achievement rather than a vote of the general population, yet i believe for it's time this was quite an achievement. the ebb and flow of democracy across centuries in ancient greece is chronicled along with brief descriptions of athens great leaders and their defining issues. my greatest disappointment with the book was it's brevity and i found it quite a short read. for any one concerning themselves with the history of democracy this is a must read.

    Cypher ~ ALL CAMPERS OF AC

    It has come to my attention that there is talk of wars and rebellions. As far as wars, anyone who participates in an attack against another camp speaks for themselves only and not the camp as a whole. As far as rebellions, anyone found participating in any rebellious acts will be immediately and forcefully removed from the camp. Anyone found with the conspiracy to rebell will suffer the same fate. This camp will not fall to a couple of ragtag self obsessed idiots that can't let go of the past. We will be organizing a camp militia to keep peace and order. Anyone who wishes to join this militia can talk to me to see if they meet the requirements.
