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
of man‟s economic needs, for, says Plato, `a state comes into existence because no individual is self-sufficing; we all have many needs." (Stumpf: 1975). On the basis of knowledge and nature of a society, Plato designed the ideal type of state considering three distinctive classes;
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
being. Aristotle also sketched the different types of state nature; like Monarchy (one ruler),
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
state to the holistic welfare.
