chapterposted on 2023-05-22, 22:20 authored by Neesham, C, Macklin, R
In this discussion, we consider political philosophy as a branch of philosophy studying the way human communities and societies create and maintain various forms of governance for the good of constituent individuals and groups. Governance as a system of conducting the affairs of the polis, i.e., the participating community of citizens, is the basis of society’s political life. Hence, political philosophy is the practice of thinking reflectively about the nature of governance, political institutions, and power, understood as a constitutive factor in the relationship between governing and being governed.
