Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Frühgeschichte, Antike, observe: 1,0, Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg (Institut für Altertumswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Politik und Gesellschaft im klassischen Athen , 32 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In der vorliegenden Arbeit soll sich mit der Verfassung Athens im five. Jh. v. Chr. beschäftigt werden. Es ist Ziel dieser Arbeit ein abgerundetes und möglichst umfassendes Bild über die Staatsordnung Attikas im klassischen Zeitalter zu geben. Dazu ist es notwendig, die Betrachtungen auf die Zeit davor zu lenken, denn im wesentlichen ist die Demokratie des five. Jh. im 6 Jh. von Solon und dann von Kleisthenes sowie epistates begründet wurden.

Ein wesentliches Augenmerk soll dabei auf die Charakteristiken der einzelnen Institutionen und das demokratische process gelenkt werden. Es ist weiterhin Ziel die Prinzipien der politischen und gesellschaftlichen Ordnung darzustellen. Welchen Stellenwert hatten die einzelnen Institutionen in Athen? Kann guy davon sprechen, dass der Gerichtshof neben der Volksversammlung das wichtigste Staatsorgan conflict? Eine weitere interresante Frage ist zudem, ob geographische, wirtschaftliche und soziale Bedingungen einen Einfluss auf die Zusammensetzung der Staatsorgane z.B. der Volksversammlung ausübten?

Ein weiterer großer Teil der Arbeit soll dem Schutz dieser beispielhaften politischen Ordnung gewidmet werden, sowie deren Grundlagen und Charakteristika. Die attischen Bürger erkannten nämlich sehr wohl, dass ihr gegebene Ordnung nur dann bestand haben konnte, wenn sie jene bestraften, die den Versuch unternahmen diese zu zerstören.

Im drittem größerem Abschnitt soll dann versucht werden, eine zusammenfassende Wertung vorzunehmen. Dabei ist es Ziel die wesentlichsten Charakteristiken herauszuarbeiten sowie die Vor- und Nachteile der attischen Demokratie zu skizzieren. Eines der wichtigsten Grundlagen ist die Gleichheit. Eine Gleichheit die sowohl eine gleiche Behandlung der Bürger aber auch die Freiheit einband. Freiheit und Gleichheit sind, so wird sich sicherlich zeigen, unverzichtbare Stützen der demokratischen Ordnung Athens im five. Jh. gewesen. Hier zeigt sich nun auch die Bedeutung der attischen Demokratie für unsere ‚moderne Demokratie’.
