Aristotle believes that most people can be enslaved, devoid of injustice, as they are born to be slaves. At the same time, some of them are born free to dominate as masters. Most modern critics have condemned these concepts. The author tries to re-evaluate the concepts of citizenship and slavery in the light of Aristotle’s Politics, to reveal not only Aristotle’s reasoning, but also how his views are interpreted by con-temporary philosophers.
