Humans are political animals Aristotle implies that what is good for human beings is not universally good for other creatures Not culturally determined or relative to the society in which you live A good political regime is one that cultivates the development of what is excellent in human beings There is a natural standard for what constitutes good politics, a good political regime Point of government is to live up to that standard Aristotle Arguably Plato’s most famous student Founded a school called the Lyceum Most famous pupil was Alexander the Great Political science is about the good of the polis The master science, but not exact Our ethical and political life is complex Certain generalizations can still be made Would not seek the same degree of exactness in all sorts of arguments alike, any more than in the products of different crafts Should not be conducted by the young An understanding of politics requires experience Ethical theory is utterly central to political science
