The Politics of Aristotle is the ancient Greek philosopher's teachings on the subject of government and politics. The Greek title of the work translates to 'the things concerning the polis'. The work examines what it means to be a citizen, categorizes the various forms of human government and passes judgement on the historical record of various regimes. Aristotle's Politics has long held a dominant position in the great collection of western political and philosophical thought. Aristotle was an Athenian philosopher that taught in the ancient polis in the 4th Century BC. He was a student of Plato, just as Plato had been a student of Socrates and served as a civilizing influence up his young pupil, Alexander the Great. Aristotle founded the Lycium in Athens as a school to teach philosophy to the city's youth.

Aristotle

Aristotle was born in the Macedonian city of Stagira in 384 BC, and died in 322. He studied in Plato's Academy in Athens and later became tutor to Alexander the Great, before establishing his own school in Athens, called the Lyceum. His writings, which were of extraordinary range, profoundly affected the whole course of ancient, medieval and modern philosophy. Many of them have survived, including The Nicomachean Ethics, The Politics and Poetics, among others.
