The purpose of this book is to argue that Aristotle examines the question of political obligation and its limits. To prove this point, some connected issues are tackled as well, such as the ethical underpinning of Aristotle’s political thought, the normativity of his practical philosophy, and the concepts of political authority and obligation themselves. As a result, the relationship between Aristotle’s political philosophy and its modern counterpart is seen in a new light through an interdisciplinary lens.
