Book description

Politics is Aristotle's treatise on the state, containing the beginnings of social and political philosophy. The treatise was written in the last years (335-322 BC) of Aristotle's life in Athens, which fell under the influence of Macedonia. The book examines the problems of the family as a cell of the state, slavery, citizenship, the definition of the state, as well as the forms of its government and goals. It is noted that the ultimate task set by Aristotle in Politics is the theoretical construction of an ideal polis. This book was published in 1905 and is a translation of Aristotle’s Politics by Benjamin Jowett, an English scholar, classical philologist, teacher, and theologian.
