Aristotle's paradox of monarchy and the biographical tradition

History of Political Thought 19 (4):501-516 (1998)

This evidence suggests Aristotle worked as an agent of Macedon in Athens, and his statements on monarchy were intentionally contradictory due to his own dangerous and ambiguous political status in Athens
