Summary/Abstract: In the chapter 26 al-Farabi shows the parallelism between God and the Universe, the Man and the Virtuous City, and in the second part of the same he expounds his theory about the degrees of the Intelligence and about the pecularities of the intellect of the Chief of the Virtuous City. In Chapter 27 the philosopher speaks about the qualities of the Chief of the Virtous City, what should be done if there is no person with all required qualities etc. The Chapter also shows that despite his strong reliance on Aristotle and Plato, al-Farabi is nevertheless a son of his own culture seeking solutions for its problems.
