Abstract

This panel presents a few very interesting questions packed in one. Of primary concern to me is the question of democracy. What is it? Can or could it exist? If it can and does, what dangers are we warned by Aristotle that it might pose? This will manifest itself in a discussion of the types of government he might endorse and some potential objections one might raise, as well as similarities to present-day forms of governance.
