Democracy, Political Theory, and Political History
This article explores the uses of Greek literature, philosophy, and politics in contemporary political theory. The article suggests that the question of how to recuperate the new political theoretical possibilities posed by a polyvocal or deconstructed Plato remains an underappreciated but critical question for political and democratic theory today. Keywords: political theory , Greek literature , democracy , history of political thought , postwar thought , polis , Plato. Whatever their differences in interest and emphasis, political theorists generally endorse the view that Plato, Aristotle, Thucydides, and the dramatic poets are part of a shifting canon of political thought and that their works have helped constitute our political vocabulary. The question of how to recognize this Greek presence and whether to remain critical of it is nevertheless the subject of longstanding disagreement. There are numerous academic contexts for the politically oriented study of Greek texts. Two critical approaches characterize the orientation political theorists take to this expansive classical Greek canon.

This hand-colored woodcut gives us an artist's concept of what Athens might've looked like in the time of the Roman emperor Hadrian, when its iconic monuments and temples were still in their prime. A city-state, or polis , was the community structure of ancient Greece. Each city-state was organized with an urban center and the surrounding countryside. Characteristics of the city in a polis were outer walls for protection, as well as a public space that included temples and government buildings. The temples and government buildings were often built on the top of a hill, or acropolis. A surviving example of a structure central to an ancient acropolis is the famous Parthenon of Athens.

Ober, W. Scheidel, B. Shaw, and D. Raaflaub, J.
Но этот канадец не знал, что ему надо держаться изо всех сил, поэтому они и трех метров не проехали, как он грохнулся об асфальт, разбил себе голову и сломал запястье.
Где оно? - не отставал Беккер. - Понятия не имею. - Парень хмыкнул.
