In the Politics, Aristotle sets out to discover what is the best form that the state can take. Similar to his mentor Plato, Aristotle considers the form that will produce justice and cultivate the highest human potential; however Aristotle takes a more empirical approach, examining the constitution of existing states and drawing on specific case-studies. In doing so he lays the foundations of modern political science.

Review:

"Built around the central theme of natural justice and the unity of Aristotle's corpus, this volume offers a serious guide for students of Aristotle's Politics. Though written with undergraduate students in mind and including study questions to assist them in reading both Aristotle's text and the authors' interpretations, the insightful interpretive moves will enlighten general scholars as well." — Professor Arlene Saxonhouse, University on Michigan, USA
