Aristotle points out toward the end of the book that "laws would be needed for man's entire life, for most people obey necessity rather than argument, and penalties rather than what is noble" (b).

    In the first two books of the Physics Aristotle discusses philosophical issues involved in the investigation of the physical universe. He introduces his distinction between form and matter and his fourfold classification of causes or explanatory factors, and defends teleological : $ Aristotle discusses the four causes (Greek: aitia) in the Physics and Metaphysics. These are the four types of explanation concerning why and, to a degree, how objects come into being. This theory.

      Aristotle’s most famous teacher was Plato (c. –c. BCE), who himself had been a student of Socrates (c. – BCE). Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, whose lifetimes spanned a period of only about years, remain among the most important figures in the history of Western tle’s most famous student was Philip II’s son Alexander, later to be known as . In can often be difficult to sort out the main point that Aristotle intends to make in Book II of the Politics because it is just a running commentary about the good and bad aspects of different theoretical and actual regimes. Still, the comments that Aristotle makes about the various regimes reveal some of Aristotle's own ideas of the best.
