Example text

This conception, however, runs the risk of drifting into totalitarianism or at the very least depreciating the political debate, as it make any kind of political choice impossible. The connection with territory is also frequently used as an instrumental approach to politics. The Greek tradition paved the way when Aristotle stressed the difference between politics, ethnos, and oîkos (household). If politics is conceived as the coexistence of diverse peoples, it denies that there is such a thing as “natural territory” and implies a socially constructed territory as its required arena.

Social contract theory clearly emanated from this postulate, in the Islamic tradition (mithaq, bay’a) as well as during the European Enlightenment. The Arthasastra anticipated Thomas Hobbes’s vision of the state of nature, when it described the lack of politics as resulting in evil and vices, or when it mentioned the fable of the big fish that will eat the small one (Matsyanyaya). The functional dimension of politics, as the art of coexistence and “maintaining harmony,” can, therefore, be considered as really transcultural and common to the humanity’s different histories.

Second, politics has been understood as an instrument by The concept of politics carries different meanings. It can be considered to be an art (scholars are “studying politics”); an activity (one can “play politics” in one’s office, in one’s club, even in one’s family); a profession (some “go into politics”); or a function (“local politics,” “national politics”). Most political scientists consider the first meanings as derived from the last one, even as metaphoric, while some others have a wider and more abstract conception that is broader than that of function.
