Sam Miller-Little February 14, 2006 Presentation on Aristotle City-States and Constitutions: A Presentation on Legislation The early section of our class’ second reading from Politics primarily focuses on a multitude of issues dealing with almost all aspects of forming, running, and the nomenclature of a government. I decided to focus on two primary subjects: citizenship and city-states as well as the five different types of constitution. Initially, he attempts to “see what [a] city-state is.” He attempts to do this by breaking up a city-state into its parts; the first, and most important, component proves to be the citizens. Aristotle grapples with several definitions of what, exactly, constitutes a citizen. He mentions many qualifications for citizens—special naming for young children, elderly people, people who’s mother was a slave, bastard children, people who’s mother was a citizen, people who’s father was a citizen, people who’s parents were both citizens, and finally people who participate in judgment and office.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
