The Athenian Constitution describes the political system of ancient Athens. The work consists of two parts. The first part, from Chapter 1 to Chapter 41, deals with the different forms of the constitution, from the trial of the Alcmaeonidae until 403 BC. The second part describes the city’s institutions, including the terms of access to citizenship, magistrates, and the courts.This Aristotelian text is unique because it is not a part of the Corpus Aristotelicum, the collection of Aristotle’s works. It was lost until two leaves of a papyrus codex carrying part of the text were discovered in Oxyrhynchus, Egypt in 1879. There is a lot of debate about whether or not Aristotle is the true author of The Athenian Constitution. Some believe it may have been written by one of Aristotle’s students.  This case laminate collector’s edition includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket.  3

  • 诗论
    Aristotle
    还有另一种艺术是仅靠语言来模仿的,无论是散文还是经文-再次是经文,可以组合不同的计量表,也可以只包含一种形式-但这迄今还没有名称。因为没有一个通用的术语,我们一方面可以适用于 和 的哑剧以及苏格拉底式的对话。另一方面,是模仿依比克,挽歌或任何类似形式的诗意模仿。实际上,人们确实在米的名称上加上了'造者'或'诗人'一词,并谈到了挽歌诗人或史诗(即六边形)诗人,就好像不是模仿诗人一样,但是赋予他们全部名字的诗句却毫无区别。即使以诗歌形式发表医学或自然科学论文,诗人的名字也是习以为常的。但是荷马和恩佩多克尔斯除了米之外别无其他,因此称呼一位诗人,另一位物理学家而不是诗人是正确的。按照同样的原则,即使作家在模仿诗歌的过程中像米勒·查里蒙在他的《半人马座》(这是一个由各种各样的乐器组成的混合曲谱)中所做的那样,将所有米合在一起,我们也应该把他也归为诗人。这些区...
