Summary/Abstract: The article claims that Aristotle is not only a great thinker, but also a thinker important for us here-and-now. In the introduction it is stated that the political ideas of Plato and Aristotle are very provocative and might be productively rethought even nowadays especially in a country like ours, where the society and the economy are undergoing an essential transformation. No wonder that they have inspired many interpretations by eminent contemporary thinkers especially in the second half of the 20th century. The first chapter is entitled "The amazingly modern political ideas of Aristotle". In it many of the components of the political theory, exposed by him in Politics, are enumerated. It is stressed that some of the most interesting theses in the ever-lasting debate on human nature, the essence of law and the types of human co-existence in the polis had been expressed even earlier by the Sophists in the 5th century BC. It is also reminded that some of the ideas, proposed in Politics, had been not only a conception of an admirable Greek. The second chapter is entitled "The application of the Aristotelianism in the political debate and the transition in Bulgaria, by Eugene Daynov.
