The object of lively controversies during the 20th century, the
conception that St. Thomas Aquinas had of the best regime is one of the
important loci of his political thought. The rediscovery and assimilation of
Aristotle’s Politics lead him to advocate a solution — the mixed regime — that
announces in many respects the political regimes of the modern era. In doing
this, he gave a fresh start to the political reflection that would not cease to be
deployed in the course of the following centuries.
