This volume collects new, revised, and expanded articles about Aristotle's Politics by renowned classical scholar Mogens Herman Hansen. By addressing old controversies, and treating issues that have been ignored or neglected, Hansen sheds new lights on a range of issues of paramount importance for understanding the Politics: Aristotle's view of democratic freedom and political freedom as a value in itself; Aristotle’s silence as to the numerous federal states in the contemporary Hellenic polis world; the sixfold model of constitutions and the alternative model according to which all constitutions are either democracies or oligarchies or a mixed form of oligarchy and democracy. In a final article he shows that Aristotle took a positive view of the mixed forms of democracy, in particular an indirect form of democracy in which the power of the people was restricted to electing the magistrates and calling them to account whereas all political decisions were left to be made by the elected magistrates.

By bringing these articles within the covers of a single volume, Mogens Herman Hansen’s writings on an important subject will be more conveniently available to students, scholars, and general readers interested in Aristotle’s Politics.

Mogens Herman Hansen (f. 1940) er dr.phil. og lektor emeritus i oldgræsk ved SAXO-Instituttet, Københavns Universitet. Han er verdenskendt som specialist i demokratiet og dets historie og har udgivet adskillige bøger om emnet – blandt andre Demokrati som styreform og som ideologi (2010), der i november 2011 blev tildelt H.O. Lange-prisen, som gives for fremragende forskningsformidling.

Pressen skrev

"Reflections on Aristotle’s 'Politics' is another innovative and interesting work by Mogens Herman Hansen on Athenian democracy, but this time with a singular focus on Aristotle’s Politics.
... What emerges from Hansen’s Reflections on Aristotle’s 'Politics' is an Aristotle different from what some previously had thought. It is an Aristotle who adopts a binary typology to analyze constitutions rather than the sixfold model; it is an Aristotle who advocates indirect democracy and rejects democratic freedom; and it is an Aristotle who recognizes alliances and federations but neglects them in favor of the polis as the unit of interest for political science. In painting this picture of Aristotle’s theory of politics, Hansen also illuminates the need to be sensitive to the context of language and its use, the problem of preconceptions in analysis, and the way Aristotle can both clarify and obscure our understanding of the polis and its place in the Hellenic world.
... Reflections on Aristotle’s 'Politics' provides a collection of essays that offer a fresh perspective on Aristotle’s theory of politics. It will force us to rethink not only Aristotle’s own theory of politics, but how we approach and understand classical Greek works and the world they inhabit."
- Lee Trepanier, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2014.

"This is a collection of eight concise and lucid papers on Aristotle's Politics by the eminent historian Mogens Herman Hansen. The author's intimate familiarity with Aristotle's text, as well as his unparalleled knowledge of Greek political history are on full display throughout. The pieces do, nevertheless, differ individually in aim and scope, thereby providing a nice display of the range of scholarly abilities needed in making anything like complete sense of this difficult text."
- Jean Roberts, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, 2014.

"Hansen shrewdly concludes that the course of ancient democracy and modern democracy moved in opposite directions with the former changing from indirect to direct involvement of all the citizens and the latter from direct to indirect. All in all, this is a stimulating collection of concise essays on Aristotle's Politics. It provides a good introduction to Hansen's more substantial and influential works in the field."
- Lloyd Gerson, University of Toronto, Hermanthena, no. 193, 2012 vinter
