The extension of society is state. Sometimes Plato treats state as society. According to
Plato, state grows out of the nature of individual. Plato said, ""the state is a natural institution, natural because it reflects the structure of human nature. The origin of the state is a reflection

King Philosopher, Warrior and Producer. Unlike Plato, Aristotle did not create a blueprint
for an ideal state. But in his Politics, Aristotle says that, "it is evident that the State is a creature of nature, and that man is by nature a political animal." (Stumpf: 1975). Aristotle viewed the state as the agency for enabling men to achieve their ultimate goals as human

Aristocracy (few rulers) and Polity (many). He observed three idiosyncratic classes in state;
Extreme Rich, Middle class and Extreme poor. His preference was middle class for governing
