    Aristotle’s “Certain Kind of Multitude”.Kevin M. Cherry - 2015 - Political Theory 43 (2):185-207.
    Political theorists have recently emphasized the popular dimension of Aristotle’s political thought, and many have called attention to Aristotle’s assertion that certain multitudes should share in the city’s deliberations.

    Lawgivers, Virtue, and the Mixed Regime: Reflections on Richard Bodéüs’s The Political Dimensions of Aristotle’s Ethics.Kevin Cherry - 2020 - Dialogue 59 (1):31-50.
    In this paper, I engage with the works of Richard Bodéüs about Aristotle’s understanding of the relationship between law, virtue, and education. I argue that there is an important difference between the demands of the law and those of reason, especially in the defective, but more common, regimes. This difference is also found in the best regime possible for most cities, the mixed regime Aristotle calls ‘polity’, insofar as it represents a balance between oligarchy and democracy.
