    A philosophy that stops here is not only impotent but also callous: a tool of exploitation, an accomplice of misery. The powerful challenge compels us: can we recognize both the depth of social ills and the delicate complexity of the human psyche and still remain believers in the calm give-and-take of “Aristotelian” ethical argument? [9]. Introduction. Aristotle’s Politics is the second part of what the Nicomachean Ethics (EN) calls “a philosophy of human things” (EN Xb15). Its analyses range over the nature of the household, criticisms of previous thinkers and legislators, the underlying structure of different forms of political organization, varieties of different governments, the causes of political dissolution.

    Aristotle was a classical Greek philosopher taught by Plato. He continued the same project of philosophy that Plato was doing, but believed that he was correcting many of Plato’s errors. He wrote on many subjects including science, logic, philosophy, politics and ethics. Aristotle’s life began in BC in Stageira, Chalcidice.   Aristotle ( B.C.) was a Greek philosopher who made significant and lasting contributions to nearly every aspect of human knowledge, from logic to biology to ethics and aesthetics.
