  1. Thornton Lockwood & Thanassis Samaras (eds.) (2015). Aristotle's Politics: A Critical Guide. Cambridge University Press.
    Arguably the foundational text of Western political theory, Aristotle's Politics has become one of the most widely and carefully studied works in ethical and political philosophy. This volume of essays offers fresh interpretations of Aristotle's key work and opens new paths for students and scholars to explore. The contributors embrace a variety of methodological approaches that range across the disciplines of classics, political science, philosophy, and ancient history. Their essays illuminate perennial questions such as the relationship between individual and community, (...)

    A History of Habitat: From Aristotle to Bourdieu is the first of its kind to trace the history of the concept of habit in the Western philosophical tradition, including its classical, modern, and contemporary expressions. Each essay is written by a specialist and conveys the historical continuity between its central figure and those who came before, so it will be of value to anyone interested in how habit figures into the conceptual histories of philosophy, psychology, sociology, political theory, and literature.

  10. Thornton Lockwood (2007). Is Natural Slavery Beneficial? Journal of the History of Philosophy 45 (2):207-221.
    Aristotle's account of natural slavery appears to be internally inconsistent concerning whether slavery is advantageous to the natural slave. Whereas the Politics asserts that slavery is beneficial to the slave, the ethical treatises deny such a claim. Examination of Aristotle's arguments suggests a distinction which resolves the apparent contradiction. Aristotle distinguishes between the common benefit between two people who join together in an association And the same benefit which exists between a whole and its parts. Master and slave share no (...)

  13. Thornton Lockwood (2006). Ethical Justice and Political Justice. Phronesis 51 (1):29-48.
    The purpose of Aristotle's discussion of political justice (τό πολιὸν[unrepresentable symbol]δν δί[unrepresentable symbol]αιον) in "EN" V.6-7 has been a matter of dispute. Although the notion of political justice which Aristotle seeks to elucidate is relatively clear, namely the notion of justice which obtains between free and equal citizens living within a community aiming at self-sufficiency under the rule of law, confusion arises when one asks how political justice relates to the other kinds of justice examined in "EN" V. Is political (...)

  14. Thornton C. Lockwood (2006). Polity, Political Justice and Political Mixing. History of Political Thought 27 (2):207-222.
    In numerous places in his Ethics and Politics, Aristotle associates political justice (or ruling in turns) and the regime of polity. I argue that there is a necessary connection between political justice and polity due to their origins in political mixing. Aristotle is the first to discover political justice and polity because his predecessors had thought that the elements which they combine -- excellence and equality in the case of political justice, and oligarchy and democracy in the case of polity (...)

  18. Thornton C. Lockwood (2004). Political Justice in Aristotle's "Nicomachean Ethics" and "Politics". Dissertation, Boston University
    In the center of the fifth book of the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle elliptically characterizes political justice as a form of reciprocal rule that exists between free and equal persons pursuing a common life directed toward self-sufficiency under the rule of law. My dissertation analyzes Aristotle's thematic treatments of political justice in the Nicomachean Ethics and Politics in order to elucidate its meaning, clarify its relationship to the other forms of justice that he also discusses, and compare it to contemporary neo-Aristotelian (...)

    In Nicomachean Ethics V.6 Aristotle contrasts political justice with household justice , paternal justice , and despotic justice . My paper expands upon Aristotle's sometimes enigmatic remarks about political justice through an examination of his account of justice within the oikia or 'household'. Understanding political justice requires explicating the concepts of freedom and equality, but for Aristotle, the children and wife within the household are free people even if not citizens, and there exists proportionate equality between a husband and wife.
