For man, when perfected, is the best of animals, but, when separated from law and justice, he is the worst of all; since armed injustice is the more dangerous, and he is equipped at birth with arms.

    Miller's recent book Nature, Justice, and Rights in Aristotle's Politics3 is the latest in a growing number of attempts to reclaim the Aristotelian heritage, at least in part, for liberalism. As a fellow la borer in the same field,41 very much admire what Miller has accom plished in his book.

The end of the 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".

“Fred Miller’s Nature, Justice and Rights in Aristotle’s Politics It is an important book. It covers a wide range of topics including what Aristotle means by saying that man is naturally a political animal, Aristotle’s taxonomy of constitutions, discussions of Locke, Hobbes, Nozick and Communitarianism, and Aristotle’s philosophy of biology.

Summary. Book III is ultimately concerned with the nature of different constitutions, but in order to understand cities and the constitutions on which they are founded, Aristotle begins with an inquiry into the nature of citizenship.

To this end are of special relevance the definitions in the Politics (a38 ff.) as well as the structure of Book 5 of the Nicomachean Ethics. In the above passage from the Politics, Aristotle formulates three fundamental definitions: Justice (dikaiosyne) is a politikon.

Sheds new light on Aristotle's relation to modern political philosophy, in particular to natural rights theorists such as Hobbes and Locke. This book will be useful for philosophers, political scientists, classical scholars, and anyone interested in the theoretical foundations of human rights.

Summary. Aristotle defines the polis, or city, as a koinonia, or political association, and he asserts that all such associations, like all deliberate human acts, are formed with the aim of achieving some adds that political association is the most sovereign form of association since it incorporates all other forms of association and aims at the highest good.

In this book Aristotle lays out almost all of his major ideas about the purpose of politics, the virtue of citizens, the varieties of regimes and the nature of justice.

Aristotle discusses at length a seemingly very technical question of what the true definition of a citizen ought to be. In Nature, Justice, and Rights in Aristotle's Politics, I attributed three main theses to Aristotle: that a metaphysical theory of nature is part of the foundations of political philosophy; that the virtue of justice is central to practical politics; and that a fully just constitution will respect and protect the rights.

Saunders. Oxford: Oxford University Press, + xvi pp. 18 Cf. Miller's argument (Nature, Justice and Rights in Aristotle, 91) that Aristotle, while not subscribing to a modern view of subjective rights possessed in a prepolitical state of nature, “denies that individuals possess rights merely by convention” and hence can be ascribed a theory of “natural” rights that is based on natural justice and determinative for political rights.

Introduction. Aristotle’s Politics is the second part of what the Nicomachean Ethics (EN) calls “a philosophy of human things” (EN Xb15).

Its analyses range over the nature of the household, criticisms of previous thinkers and legislators, the underlying structure of different forms of political organization, varieties of different governments, the causes of political dissolution.
