Introduction The question of what politics is has been a hotly debated topic around the world for more than two thousand years, from Ancient Greece to the 21st Century. Indeed, many philosophers including Aristotle, Dahl, Leach and Machiavelli, discussed their definitions of ‘politics’, with widely differing conclusions. However, despite the extensive debate, there is still no universally accepted definition of what politics is, let alone what it should be. Despite more contemporary efforts to define what politics is, these definitions can be called into question and requires much more diverse perspectives to define. This essay will draw upon, and contrast, the philosophical ideas of Aristotle and Machiavelli, to discuss what politics is, and furthermore, discuss how it should be.

The first book was an attempt to precise investigation of public opinion and its relationship to government.

Patrick Mannings’ argument, as well as reasoning on World-History is valid. Internal Historian and external cultural-scientific paths have revolutionised World-History, and this is why: Both paths have helped revolutionise World-Historyistory, providing it with a new definition of character, and enabling it to expand, whereby historians can now utilise old and new approaches to discover patterns and linkages of the past, resulting in greater understanding of our world, past and present, as well as our heritage.
