Averroes on Politics - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 133
Politics/Averroes/Höffe: For political thought, [Averroes'] commentary on Plato's Politeia is significant, albeit without its introduction and conclusion.
Resources: Aristotle's politics are not available to Averroës.
Averroes pro Plato: Surprisingly, the commentator himself adopts the elements of Plato that contradict Islam:
Equal rights: [Averroes adopts] the equality of men and women, the community of women and goods of the ruling elite, even the right of a propaganda lie.
>Equal rights
Rule: Similar to al-Farabi, Averroes represents a unity of secular and religious rule, including its capacity for Holy War.
Ruler: (...) if not all relevant skills are combined in one person, [Averroes] recommends an aristocracy like al-Farabi.
>al-Farabi, >Islam, >Religion.
