  1. In Books IV-VI Aristotle explores this question by looking at the kinds of regimes that actually existed in the Greek world and answering the question of who actually does rule.
  2. Aristotle notes that people value and care for what is their own.
  3. Human beings alone have the ability to speak, and Aristotle says that we have been given that ability by nature so that we can speak and reason with each other to discover what is right and wrong, what is good and bad, and what is just and unjust. Aristotle believes that it is not easy to be virtuous, and he knows that becoming virtuous can only happen under the right conditions.
  4. Aristotle died the following year in exile.
  5. The correct regime of polity, highlighted in Book IV, is under political rule, while deviant regimes are those which are ruled as though a master was ruling over slaves. If a law does not fit well with the principles of the regime, although it may be an excellent law in the abstract, the people will not believe in it or support it and as a result it will be ineffective or actually harmful 1269a31.

  • Clearly, Aristotle had significant firsthand experience with politics, though scholars disagree about how much influence, if any, this experience had on Aristotle's thought;
  • If we want to understand what something is, it must be understood in terms of that end, which we can discover through careful study;
  • But it is clear that Aristotle believes that as with the master's superiority to the slave, the man's superiority to a woman is dictated by nature and cannot be overcome by human laws, customs, or beliefs;
  • The community brings about virtue through education and through laws which prescribe certain actions and prohibit others.
