Politics

Aristotle's Politics is a work of political philosophy. The end of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics declared that the inquiry into ethics necessarily follows into politics, and the two works are frequently considered to be parts of a larger treatise, or perhaps connected lectures, dealing with the philosophy of human affairs. Aristotle is generally regarded as one of the most influential ancient thinkers in a number of philosophical fields, including political theory.

    "Mildly Interesting"
    What did you like best about Politics? What did you like least?

    Sometimes Aristotle had interesting things to say about what causes stability in governments and the bit at the end about education was kind of interesting. He also has an unfortunate tendency to meander extensively and repeat himself, however.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Finishing up Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel, which is much more entertaining than this was, and then on to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.


    Have you listened to any of Matthew Josdal’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but this performance was impressive. Aristotle is hard to read, and his inflection was a great tool in understanding Aristotle's convoluted sentences.


    Could you see Politics being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Haha, no. It would just be one guy droning on about different forms of government.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this for a class on Classical Political Theory. Would not necessarily recommend it to the casual listener - mostly just Classicists and PoliSci students.
