Riesbeck argues that Aristotle's rules concerning the exact nature and cost of political neighborhood, political authority, and political participation are coherent and in line with his aristocratic criteria of justice. the result's a idea that, whereas now not freed from difficulties, continues to be a most likely fruitful source for modern brooding about the chronic difficulties of political life.
