Aristotle And Tragedy
we still lack any generally accepted list of rules for how they are and should be made. The Text of the Politics Having laid out the groundwork for Aristotle's thought, we are now in a position to look more closely at the text of the Politics. They said that there were not many things, but that being alone had a subsistence.the ancient philosophers.through this ignorance added so much to their want of knowledge, as to fancy that nothing else was generated or had a being; but they subverted all generation. Book I, 1094a.18 It is the mark of an educated man to look for precision in each class of things just so far as the nature of the subject admits; it is evidently equally foolish to accept probable reasoning from a mathematician and to demand. For Aristotle, there is more to citizenship than living in a particular place or sharing in economic activity or being ruled under the same laws. Aristotle's Poetics recommends that the writer should avoid making his plot episodic, where it is "neither probable nor necessary that the episodes follow each other." To Aristotle, this is merely a sign of bad poets, "through their own want of ability." The good poet,. While the city is clearly a kind of unity, it is a unity that must derive from a multitude.

Notice again the importance of logos reason and speech. Variant: We are what we repeatedly do, therefore excellence is not an act, but a habit. Because there are several different types of regime (six, to be specific, which will be considered in more detail shortly there are several different types of good citizen. Unfortunately, these regimes have taught them the wrong things. The chief forms of beauty are order and symmetry and definiteness, which the mathematical sciences demonstrate in a special degree. 3 : Aristotle: Politics Is Not Philosophy Aristotle, who foresaw so many things, never dreamed of the social truth. For the beginning is thought to be more than half of the whole, and many of the questions we ask are cleared up. Book viii, 1155a.5 When people are friends, they have no need of justice, but when they are just, they need friendship in addition. That Aristotle believes slavery to be just and good for both master and slave in some circumstances is undeniable. Certainly almost everyone wants to see law-abiding citizens, but it is questionable that changing the citizens' character or making them morally good is part of what government should.
