A politeía is by deﬁnition ruled by laws. What kind of pólis, political relations, and laws are we talking about here? As indicated in Eikeland (2008a:413–422), several concepts of “politics” are at play in Aristotle. He distinguishes between (1) politics as found “empirically”, surveying contemporary extant societies; (2) politics as it should be, dealing with 25 Pol1274b39, 1275a7, 1276a18-b15, 1295b1, cf. 1278b9-12, 1279a26-27, 1280b30, Metaph1016b6-16 2 Cosmópolis or Koinópolis? 39 everyday matters; and (3) what he calls true and primary politics or the truly political.
How we evaluate and judge what we perceive. This was the realm of (inner) freedom and personal responsibility. Zeno’s successor Cleanthes appears to have used a simile of a dog tied to a horse and cart to illustrate the human condition (Long and Sedley, 62A). The dog following willingly is free.

Arendt (1958:23f) warned against conﬂating the social with the political, reducing politics to sociality, the way mediaeval translations of politikós to socialis in Latin invited. The meaning of pólis was non-local from the start. Talking about Athens or other pólis, the ancients talked about the community members (Athênai = Athenians) who formed the citizenship, not the city’s buildings or location. According to Aristotle, a pólis was not even identical to its speciﬁc members. It was more “deethniﬁed”.
