1864 words - 7 pagesOn hearing the word politics, what usually springs to mind are images of government, politicians and their policies or more negatively the idea of corruption and dirty tricks. The actual definition seems to have been obscured and almost lost by such representations and clichés that tend not to pinpoint the true essence, which defines this thing, called politics. In order to make an attempt at a definition of politics a systematic approach is required. To begin with, a brief historical overview will be considered, to understand the origins of politics. Following this, different core concepts, which are imperative to a definition of politics, will be discussed, in the hope toVIEW DOCUMENT

This is a daring assertion but one that must be made clear. It is clear that for us to get to the heart of the matter here it is necessary to question some of the most basic assumptions that we may hold on to as humans. This leaves this work open to attack, as it may deviate from mainstream academic assumptions and indeed requirements about how such a question should be answered. Indeed, it must be madeVIEW DOCUMENT

As Aristotle puts it, ‘you cannot make a state out of men who are all alike.’(1261a22) But by differentiating people based on their gender and not even allowing the best of the women to participate in politics, Aristotle creates an unnatural gender hierarchy. In this state people don’t get what they deserve, since in fact some women deserve more than some men.

At the beginning of chapter 2, Aristotle claims that a polis comes out of need, but also reproduction. This is idea is different with the views of Socrates and Plato in the republic.
