|About Aristotle’s Politics at HGF
Any student of politics or economics should study Aristotle’s Politics. This book has influenced political thought through the Middle Ages in Christianity and Islam. It is also the work that the rationalists of the Enlightenment read and which many attacked, preferring the philosophy of Machiavelli, as with Francis Bacon and Thomas Hobbes for example. Reading Aristotle's Politics provides an opportunity to compare the classical vision of society and citizenship with our own secular vision of the industrial society. But also, Aristotle's analysis of what is just and works well for a society and what is harmful is as valid today as it was over two thousand years ago.
The text will be from: Aristotle’s Politics, Carnes Lord, Second Edition, 2013.
|Some printed material will be available for week 1:
