Carnes Lord is the author of Education and Culture in the Political Thought of Aristotle and coauthor, with Dain A. Trafton . Better is to read Nicomachean Ethics, by Aristotle, before reading The Politics, as the author intended

Carnes Lord is the author of Education and Culture in the Political Thought of Aristotle and coauthor, with Dain A. Trafton, of Tasso's Dialogues. Better is to read Nicomachean Ethics, by Aristotle, before reading The Politics, as the author intended. Other contemporary works, such as early Plato and The Republic, and selected texts about the period, can substantially support the essentiality of these writings to understanding subsequent cultures. A caveat about this particular product is that the perfect binding technology used to manufacture the book tends to allow the pages to become unattached and fall out of the cover.

Aristotle's Politics is divided into eight books which are each further divided into chapters. Citations of this work, as with the rest of the works of Aristotle, are often made by referring to the Bekker section numbers. Book I concludes with Aristotle's assertion that the proper object of household rule is the virtuous character of one's wife and children, not the management of slaves or the acquisition of property. Carnes Lord has argued against the sufficiency of this view, however, noting the numerous cross-references between Jaeger's supposedly separate works and questioning the difference in tone that Jaeger saw between them.

Carnes Lord is professor of strategic leadership at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. He is the author of Education and Culture in the Political Thought of Aristotle and The Modern Prince: What Leaders Need to Know Now, among other works. Barker's older Oxford translation should also be mentioned although it is not as literal as the others. They all have useful features apart from the translation itself to recommend them over say the Penguin translation.

Book 8. Politics Aristotle. 4/Aristotle For that which can fore-see by the exercise of mind is by nature intended to be lord and master, and that which can with its body give effect to such foresight is . . Translated by Benjamin Jowett. Part II. He who thus considers things in their first growth and origin, whether a state or anything else, will obtain the clearest view of them. For that which can fore-see by the exercise of mind is by nature intended to be lord and master, and that which can with its body give effect to such foresight is a sub-ject, and by nature a slave; hence master and slave have the same inter-est. Now nature has distinguished between the female and the slave.

Carnes Lord has argued against the sufficiency of this view, however, noting the numerous cross-references between Jaeger's supposedly separate works and questioning the difference in tone that Jaeger saw between them. For example, Book IV explicitly notes the utility of examining actual regimes (Jaeger's "empirical" focus) in determining the best regime (Jaeger's "Platonic" focus)

Aristotle: Politics: Book 4. BOOK THREE. I. HE who would inquire into the essence and attributes of various kinds of governments must first of all determine 'What is a state?'

Aristotle: Politics: Book 4. HE who would inquire into the essence and attributes of various kinds of governments must first of all determine 'What is a state?' At present this is a disputed question. Some say that the state has done a certain act; others, no, not the state, but the oligarchy or the tyrant. And the legislator or statesman is concerned entirely with the state; a constitution or government being an arrangement of the inhabitants of a state

The Best Regime and the Best Men. Characteristics of the Best City. The Politics, Book VIII. The Education of the Young. Carnes Lord and others have argued based on a variety of textual evidence that books 7 and 8 were intended by Aristotle to follow book 3. Rearranging the text in this way would have the effect of joining the early discussion of the origins of political life and the city, and the nature of political justice, with the discussion of the ideal city.

Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other. In conclusion, he briefly traces the subsequent history and influence of the Politics up to modern times.

This new translation of one of the fundamental texts of Western political thought combines strict fidelity to Aristotle's Greek with a contemporary English prose style. Lord's intention throughout is to retain Aristotle's distinctive style.The accompanying notes provide literary and historical references, call attention to textual problems, and supply other essential information and interpretation. A glossary supplies working definitions of key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary as well as a guide to linguistic relationships that are not always reflected in equivalent English terms. Lord's extensive Introduction presents a detailed account of Aristotle's life in relation to the political situation and events of his time and then discusses the problematic character and history of Aristotle's writings in general and of the Politics in particular. Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other. In conclusion, he briefly traces the subsequent history and influence of the Politics up to modern times."Lord's translation is clearly the best available."—Claremont Review


Reviews about The Politics (7):
Gardataur
IT SHOWED ME THE WORLD HAS NOT CHANGED MUCH IN THE LAST 2300 YEARS.
Nawenadet
Aristotle's The Politics is without a doubt one of the most celebrated works of political science from antiquity. He begins with a description of a state, advances through the numerous types of constitutions, describes the ideal citizen, and defines good government-not to mention numerous other fascinating political insights into the running of a state.
Aristotle's outline for government and state has been influential to political scientists for over 2,400 years. His discussion on the cons of complete unity, as well as his chapter on "the natural and unnatural methods of acquiring goods," certainly must have influenced Karl Marx, and his discussions on the "good of all" certainly led to Mills and Bentham's utilitarianism.
The Penguin Classics edition gives the reader an authoritative, inexpensive copy that is ideal for scholars as well as students. The footnotes are helpful, but not excessive. An excellent purchase all around.

Jowett translation. Can't go wrong.

Shipping was fast. A few scratches and marks but otherwise fabulous condition. A fun book to read.
The print is very tiny to the point it is unpleasant to read and cannot highlight. Will be returning to receive a new one.
