433-448. ISSN: 00925853Painfully aware of the dangers that spiritedness poses for a pacific politics, we have, since the inception of modern political thought, sought to subordinate the ancient, masculine virtues to the virtue that Adam Smith would label humanity. But our remarkably successful solution encounters today a new problem: in our emphasis on political peace, we now face the danger posed by the political apathy of a large & apparently growing number of self-absorbed, because self-satisfied, democratic citizens. Here Aristotles political science may be helpful to us, for Aristotles complex psychological dissection of spiritedness is keen not only to its dangers but also to its benefits for democratic life.

Accordingly, his project simultaneously to subdue & defend spiritedness can serve as a useful prolegomenon to our own efforts to balance the need for a pacific political life with that of a vibrant political & intellectual culture.--The author wishes to thank the Lynde & Harry Bradley Foundation for a summer grant award to research the subject presented in this essay.
