By Marcus Tullius Cicero
Monarchie, Aristokratie oder Demokratie – welche ist die beste Staatsform? Bricht nicht früher oder später doch eine jede zusammen? In »De re publica« lässt Cicero die Mitglieder des Scipionenkreises über eben dieses brisante Thema diskutieren. Die Mischverfassung der Römischen Republik sei die stabilste von allen und insofern die bestmögliche, so das Fazit. Aber welche Eigenschaften sollte der ideale Politiker mitbringen?
Nicht zuletzt weil das Thema von Ciceros staatsphilosophischer Schrift heute nicht minder aktuell ist, ist ihre Lektüre in den meisten Bundesländern fest im Lehrplan verankert.
