The Definition of Politics: Personal Point of View ("Politics of Aristotle")
The book "Politics of Aristotle" could be considered one of the most important political books in History. The book tries to explain the importance of Politics in old Greece and its relevance for the state, but at the same time it does not try to give or establish a narrow concept of what politics is.
From my personal point of view, Aristotle tries to tell us that Politics is the art and science of human government. And this government exists for the sake of noble actions and virtue that are parts of man's nature. This way "noble actions" would be reflected in human association in order to achieve a common good. And virtue will establish an organized environment for the government development.
In the first book, about the State and Society, Aristotle states that man is more of a political animal than bees or any others and this is because man has the gift of speech.
