Aristotle's "Politics" : A Reader's Guide Paperback / softback
Part of the A Reader's Guides series
In the Politics, Aristotle sets out to discover what is the best form that the state can take.
Similar to his mentor Plato, Aristotle considers the form that will produce justice and cultivate the highest human potential; however Aristotle takes a more empirical approach, examining the constitution of existing states and drawing on specific case-studies.
In doing so he lays the foundations of modern political science.
