“ἄνθρωπος φύσει πολιτικὸν ζῶιον………‘ο δὲ μὴ δυνάμενος κοινωνεῖν ἢ μηθὲν δεόμενος δι᾽ αὐτάρκειαν….ἢ θηρίον ἢ θεός.”

“Man is by nature a political animal…..He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god.”

Aristotle (384-322 BC). Politics. Book 1,  1253a,  2-3 and 27-29.
