Armando Jose Perez-Gea
Temp CLGE Lecturer
BioArmando Perez-Gea is a Fellow and Lecturer for Civic, Liberal, and Global Education (COLLEGE). He was an undergraduate at Stanford where he completed majors in Political Science, Economics, and Public Policy and a co-terminal MA in Philosophy. After working as a consultant in DC and teaching in Mexico City, he went to Yale to pursue a MA in Economics, MPhil in Political Science and Philosophy, MAR in Philosophy in Religion, and PhD in Political Science and Philosophy.
Armando is working on a book titled "An Aristotelian Theory of the State", which argues that Weber's definition of the state as the monopoly of legitimate violence is mistaken. Instead we should turn to Aristotle to see what he thought the state is. In particular the state's relation to the self-sufficient association, its creation of a public sphere where honor (understood as striving to live a life worth remembering) is exercised, and it allowing for the exercise of republican rule. He is also working on a project to develop an Aristotelian theory of vice and viciousness.
