Aristotle

 

Aristotle (384-322 BCE)

“Justice is only found among those whose mutual relations are controlled by law, and law is only found among those who are liable to injustice; for legal justice consists in distinguishing between what is just and what is unjust.”

  • From The Nicomachean Ethics (Book V, section vi, Bekker page 1134a) by Aristotle, translated by J. A. K. Thomson (Penguin Classics, 2004).
