Re plato, I do understand reservations, once he starts talking about how to actually run the Republic, you start to think, er...

But aristotle I thought was a good antidote to that, the way he conceptualise eudamonia as essentially a happy medium of things. I thought that was very common sense.

A contrast between their two ways of thinking was actually the central part of my proposed mphil, I was going to look at their relationship and compare/contrast with the relationship between modernity and post modernity.

one is about ideological (revolutionary) purity...
Or, equivalently, class purity: "dekulakization" etc.
