Lecture 8 - The Mixed Regime and the Rule of Law: Aristotle, Politics, IV

This video was recorded at PLSC 114 - Introduction to Political Philosophy. The lecture discusses Aristotle's comparative politics with a special emphasis on the idea of the regime, as expressed in books III through VI in Politics. A regime, in the context of this major work, refers to both the formal enumeration of rights and duties within a community as well as to the distinctive customs, manners, moral dispositions and sentiments of that community. Aristotle asserts that it is precisely the regime that gives a people and a city their identity.
