This thematic philosophical introduction to the central topics of ancient legal and political philosophy places particular emphasis on their relevance to contemporary philosophical debates. The book provides a philosophical reconstruction, analysis and critical assessment of the main theories and arguments of legal and political philosophers of the classical period. Their influences on and differences from contemporary thinking in legal and political philosophy are also explored. These connections illustrate how we can fruitfully engage with the arguments and theories of ancient legal and political philosophy today.
