Aristotle on Logos - Dictionary of Arguments
Bubner I 190
Logos/Aristotle: it surpasses the elementary natural conditionality. In contrast to Hobbes and Rousseau, there is no contract conclusion, which leads out of nature (natural right).
Logos: to be understood in Aristotle as language and not as reason, which emerges from the comparison with animals.
Language reveals the good and the just in mutual exchange.
The good as leading design of action is indeed controversial, so that it must be debated.
The Logos is such a means to discover, but not a set goal and not content in itself.
It is only thanks to the insinuation of common interests that the dialogue is set in motion.
Without polis no function of the logos and no logos, no politics.
The growing complexity is self-sustaining without forming a political community of action. HegelVsAristotle recognizes this._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
