Aristotle’s Criticism of Plato’s Republic [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 52 (3):709-710 (1999)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Aristotle dedicates the first chapters of Politics B to a critical examination of Plato’s Kallipolis from the standpoint of the end of the city and the means to achieve it. Many modern commentaries have depicted Aristotle’s critique as unfair to Plato. Through a detailed philosophical commentary, Mayhew attempts to demonstrate on the contrary that “Aristotle is right, and his modern critics wrong”.
