Abolition des dettes et constitution mixte chez Aristote

Abstract : In the Aristotelian Athenaion Politeia, cancellation of debts (seisachtheia) implemented in Athens by Solon, while being presented as a “democratic” measure, is linked to a political regime characterized as “mixed” or “medium” constitution. However, other authors make the cancellation of debts a specific feature of extreme democracy or tyranny. This raises therefore the question of how Aristotle's presentation of seisachtheia ties in with his theoretical definition of polity and how it fits into the political context and philosophical thinking of the 4th century BC.
