This is a comparative essay on who should rule AND the purpose or function of the state. Plato and Locke come to very different conclusions about who should rule. What is the foundational assumption that each author makes about equality? How does this assumption lead each author to a different conclusion about who should rule? Aristotle and Locke have different conceptions of the state’s purpose or function. Explain how each author thinks that the state will serve the people who compose it. Compare each author’s theory about the purpose or function of the state. Do you see similarities? Do you see differences?
