Excerpt from Aristotle's Politics: Translated by Benjamin Jowett With Introduction, Analysis and Index by H. W. C. DavisAristotle is not, strictly speaking, the founder of political science. In the age of Pericles, and earlier still, statesmen and philosophers had theorized about the origin of society, the relative merits of various constitutions, and other kindred topics. Though Socrates was more concerned with ethics than with politics, he applied the powerful solvent of his dialectic to many of the political ideas which were fashionable in his day. The conceptions of utility as the ideal which the statesman should pursue, and of scientific knowledge as the indispensable equipment of the statesman, would seem to have had their birth in the Socratic circle. Plato, the pupil of Socrates, not content with developing - the suggestions of his master and with giving to the Socratic formulae a deeper meaning, essayed a more systematic discussion of the nature of the state and its right organization. In the Republic he describes the state as it would appear if founded and governed by philosophers in the Law: he offered to the statesmen Of his age a model more practicable and more nearly related to the experience of the past; a model which the legislator for a new colony might follow without undue violence to Greek prejudices and Opinions. Although the views of Plato are sharply, and not always justly, criticized by Aristotle, the in¿uence of the Republic and, the Law: is perceptible in many places of the Politic: where they are not mentioned.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
