  4. Plato on Recognition of Political Leaders: The Importance of Mirrored Character Traits.Leo Catana - 2020 - Polis 37 (2):265-289.
    This article argues for two inter-related theses keyed to Plato’s Gorgias. Callicles does not represent a constitutional form, but political participation itself, characterised by ambition, competition among political candidates, and the psychological and ethical mechanisms entailed in the process of gaining political recognition. According to Socrates’s understanding, the political leader’s mirroring and internalisation of dominant character traits, held amongst those individuals transferring power, is decisive to the approval bestowed upon the political leader in question. This reading supplements that of Ober, (...)

  5. La Première Révolution Politique Occidentale?Giles Courtieu - 2020 - Polis 37 (2):290-316.
    Homeric politics have interested scholars for a long time, but their attention has mostly focused on number of major political scenarios: the public assemblies and councils present in the Achaean camp, the agora of Ithaca, or the Trojan court. Yet nothing really decisive ever happens there, except the spread of confusion, despair, pride, and, in the end, either the lack of solution to the political issues variously raised in each case or the reinforcement of the established political order. Very likely (...)

  6. Learning From Women: Mothers, Slaves, and Regime Change in Tacitus’ Dialogue on Orators.Harriet Fertik - 2020 - Polis 37 (2):245-264.
    This essay offers a new assessment of the role of women in Tacitus’ Dialogue on Orators and of their significance for Tacitus’ analysis of regime change. The women of the Dialogue have received only cursory scholarly attention: they appear briefly in Messalla’s diatribe on the decline of Roman education, when he contrasts the virtuous mothers of the Republic with the enslaved nurses who rear children in his own period, when an emperor rules in Rome. Yet Messalla’s exemplary mothers undermine his (...)

  13. Justice and the Supposed Fallacy of Irrelevance in Plato’s Republic.Sean Skedzielewski - 2020 - Polis 37 (2):317-337.
    Previous commentators on Plato’s Republic have relied on mistaken assumptions about the requirements for Plato’s theory of justice: that Plato establishes a bi-conditional between proper psychic rule and the performance of conventionally just acts. They believe that if Plato does not establish this bi-conditional, then his theory of justice as a virtue will succumb to the fallacy of irrelevance. I claim Plato need not meet that requirement. A novel interpretation of the arguments of Book IV concerning justice in the soul (...)

  14. The Priority of the Good and the Contrapuntal Character of Aristotle’s Politics I.Thomas W. Smith - 2020 - Polis 37 (2):221-244.
    Politics I has been the subject of a number of textual questions about the relation of the Ethics to the Politics. These textual questions involve us in theoretical questions about the differences between contemporary and ancient conceptions of political rule. Resolving the exegetical challenges can help us clarify the theoretical differences. A fresh approach to the textual challenges reveals that Politics I has a contrapuntal character with two reinforcing movements. One explores why and how despotic conceptions of politics fail using (...)
