    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 (...)

    Love of the Good as the Cure for Spiritedness in Plato’s Republic.Thomas W. Smith - 2016 - Review of Metaphysics 70 (1):33-58.
    Plato’s teaching about the Good is sometimes blamed for denigrating particular goods.
