Lec 8 - The Mixed Regime and the Rule of Law: Aristotle's Politics, IV

"Lec 8 - The Mixed Regime and the Rule of Law: Aristotle's Politics, IV" Introduction to Political Philosophy (PLSC 114) The lecture discusses Aristotle's comparative politics with a special emphasis on the idea of the regime, as expressed in books III through VI in Politics. A regime, in the context of this major work, refers to both the formal enumeration of rights and duties within a community as well as to the distinctive customs, manners, moral dispositions and sentiments of that community. Aristotle asserts that it is precisely the regime that gives a people and a city their identity. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
