PREFACE.

The translation of the Politics which is now given to the public was commenced about fifteen years since, with the intention of illustrating the Laws of Plato. A rough draft was made by the translator, which he had the advantage of reading over with Mr. Alfred Robinson, of New College. But finding the work more difficult than he had anticipated, he determined to begin again and rewrite the whole. He was insensibly led on to the preparation of a commentary and an analysis. Other subjects of a more general character, which arose out of the study of Aristotle's Politics, naturally took the form of essays'. These will be published shortly and will complete Vol. II. The translation

'The subjects of the Essays will be as follows :

1. The Life of Aristotle.
2. The Structure and Formation of some of the Aristotelian Writings, to

which are added three Appendices :
(i) On Books V, VI, VII of the Nicomachean and Eudemian Ethics :
(ii) On the Order of the Books of the Politics :

(iii) On the Order of the Books of the Metaphysics. 3. On the Style and Language of the Politics. 4. On the Text of the Politics. 5. Aristotle as a Critic of Plato. 6. Aristotle's Contributions to History. 7. Aristotle's Politics, 8. The Spartans and their Institutions. 9. Aristotle as a Political Philosopher. VOL. I.
