Citizens and Statesmen: A Study of Aristotle's Politics

By Mary P. Nichols | Go to book overview

ENDNOTES

Introduction
1.
Stephen G. Salkever, "Women, Soldiers, and Citizens: Plato and Aristotle on Political Virility," Polity 19, no. 2 ( Winter 1986): 232. Salkever is critical of this "communitarian" approach to Aristotle, of attempts to find in his thought support for "fully committed citizenship" (p. 249); see also his Finding the Mean: Theory and Practice in Aristotelian Political Philosophy ( Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1990), esp. 169-74. In finding in Aristotle's understanding of politics a corrective to contemporary alternatives, Salkever's work parallels my own. His emphasis, however, differs. Rather than focusing on how citizens and statesmen fulfill their human capacity for rational activity, Salkever stresses Aristotle's reservations against political life and the sense in which politics is only one means for developing rationality ( Finding the Mean, esp. pp. 74-79, 180, and 32). Salkever's emphasis supports his attempt to build on Aristotle's political theory a defense of liberalism against its communitarian critics.

5.
Mary G. Dietz, "Citizenship with a Feminist Face: The Problem with Maternal Thinking," Political Theory 13, no. 1 ( February 1985): 28 and 34. In spite of their common reliance on Aristotle, however, Dietz is critical of Elshtain's attempt to introduce maternal thinking into politics.

Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition ( Garden City, New York: Doubleday and Company, Inc., 1959), 30; J. G.A. Pocock, The Machiavellian Moment ( Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1975), 550. Pocock finds support for his view of Aristotle in Arendt's interpretation.
