Is There Ethical Voting?

Alkis Gounaris
National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

Abstract: Can abstention from the election process be ethically assessed? The political nature of man inspired by Aristotle -as we have inherited it from interpretations based on Hegelian analysis- implies a necessary participation in the political process. If man is by nature a political animal, then participation in elections is mandatory. But is this self-evident? And if so, what are the ethical criteria for voting?

Keywords: ethical voting, political theory, Aristotle
