Abstract

"Plato and Aristotle", the third volume of "Order and History", continues the analysis of the Greek order of the soul and of the polis started in vol. II, "The World of the Polis" and offers a comprehensive analysis of Plato's main 'political' dialogues and of Aristotle's "Politics" as specific achievements in the universal history of order. Plato's political thought represents a synthesis of metaphysical, ethical and epistemological dimensions and a steadfast perspective to include his whole philosophy. Aristotle's political philosophy is considered both on its own and in its relation to Plato's. The analysis focuses also on the issues of sovereignty and law, that have been crucial in Voegelin's endeavours since the beginning of his scientific path. The present edition is enriched with a critical apparatus.
