Our National History: Instrumentality, Slavery and Action in Aristotle, Carlos Montemayor Romo de Vivar, 1592320686


The approximation of Carlos Montemayor Romo de Vivar on Aristotle, possesses an air of truth and faith in the theories of the Greek philosopher, which the writer supports with depth of knowledge, passion and dedication. Since many of our institutions and sciences are based in Aristotle’s theories and those of other Greek philosophers, he is a fervent defender of a direct teaching of their books in the universities.

This book’s main contention is that Aristotle’s physical treatises and his ethical and political writings share something in common: a rich and complex theory of agency. This theory of agency naturally includes a theory of human action that sheds light on the Aristotelian notion of slavery.

By contrasting various contemporary approaches to the work of Aristotle, the author suggests that the common thread in Aristotle’s philosophy is this theory of agency. He does so by showing how his writings shall be understood in their natural environment: the Greek world.

Tangentially, this work has some relevant repercussions on the standard interpretation of Aristotle’s Physics and Politics.


Carlos Montemayor Romo de Vivar was born in Mexico City in 1977. He studied law and graduated from UNAM, the National Autonomous University of Mexico, in Mexico City. In 2003 he received his M.A. in Philosophy from New School University in New York City. His study on Aristotle is the thesis for his degree from that school.
