Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

According to Aristotle, man's essential sociality implies a distinctive conception of politics, one in which all political associations exist for the sake of the moral perfection of human beings. This stands in sharp contrast with the modern view of politics that man is not "by nature" political; rather, man chooses to create political associations for the sake of securing the protection of his life and property. Many political theorists have begun to express doubts about this modern view, calling for a return to Aristotle's vision of a politics that is deeply moral. In Aristotle's Politics Today, distinguished political philosophers representing a diversity of approaches examine the meaning, relevance, and implications of Aristotle's political thought for contemporary social and political theory. The contributors engage a broad range of topics, including Aristotle's views on constitutionalism, the extension of Aristotelian ideas to issues in international relations, the place of Aristotelian virtue in modern democratic politics, and Aristotle's conception of justice.

"The contributors make interesting and original points that deserve the attention of contemporary political philosophers and political theorists." -- Nicholas Rescher, author of Philosophical Dialectics: An Essay on Metaphilosophy

Contributors include Eugene Garver, Lloyd P. Gerson, Lenn E. Goodman, Edward Halper, Fred D. Miller Jr., May Sim, Peter L. P. Simpson, and Robert B. Talisse. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Lenn E. Goodman is Professor of Philosophy and Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Vanderbilt University. He is the author and editor of many books, including coeditor (with Heidi M. Ravven) of Jewish Themes in Spinoza's Philosophy, also published by SUNY Press. Robert B. Talisse is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University and the author of several books, including Democracy After Liberalism: Pragmatism and Deliberative Politics. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

More About the Author

Robert B. Talisse is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Philosophy Department at Vanderbilt University. He writes mainly about political philosophy, with special interest in democratic theory, liberalism, justice, and pluralism. Talisse also pursues interests in American pragmatism, social epistemology, and argumentation theory. Many of these interests are brought together in his 2009 book, *Democracy and Moral Conflict* (Cambridge University Press), where he argues that there are shared epistemic principles underlying even our most vehement moral disputes, and that these principles are robust enough to sustain democratic commitments despite deep moral conflicts.

Talisse has recently co-authored a book with Scott Aikin about public political argumentation titled *Why We Argue (And How We Should)*, which will be available in the fall of 2013. His *Engaging Political Philosophy* will be published later in 2014. Talisse is co-host of the podcast, *New Books in Philosophy*, and a monthly columnist for the blog *3 Quarks Daily*.
