      A constitution is just when it benefits everyone in the city and unjust when it benefits only those in power. When a single person rules, a constitution is a monarchy if the ruler is good and a tyranny if the ruler is bad. When a small elite rules, a constitution is an aristocracy if the rulers are good and an oligarchy if the rulers are bad. Part I Every state is a community of some kind, and every community is established with a view to some good; for mankind always act in order to obtain that which they think good. But, if all communities aim at some good, the state or political community, which is the highest of all, and which embraces all the rest, aims at good in a greater degree than any other, and at the highest good.

[] Summary Probably written by a student of Aristotle, The Athenian Constitution is both a history and an analysis of Athens' political machinery between the seventh and fourth centuries BC, which stands as a model of democracy at a time when city-states lived under differing kinds of government. Evolution of Democracy and the Athenian Constitution Democracy is defined in modern times as government by the people. To put that in perspective and better understand all that democracy entails we must consider its origins. It is surprising indeed that even today tyrannies and dictatorships exist.

The recovery of such a book, after its loss for so many centuries, is an event in literature; at the same time its argument, largely concerned as it is. The Athenian exiles, headed by the Alcmeonidae, could not by their own power effect their return, but failed continually in their attempts.

Among their other failures, they fortified a post in Attica, Lipsydrium, above Mt. Parnes, and were there joined by some partisans from the city; but they were besieged by the tyrants and reduced to surrender. The Athenian Constitution is worth reading for two reasons. First, besides the Bible, it is the only written text I know of detailing the constitution of an ancient Western people that is extant.

Because of this, the text is important as it illumines the political life of the city Plato Cited by: About The Athenian Constitution.
