Storck reprises Aristotle’s teleological argument that states (polis) pursue greater ends by ordaining certain ends for its subjects and ordaining someone to govern it, leading them towards greater ends that require someone to rule them over. Thus political institutions are found “always” within human society and are thus natural. Unfortunately this Hellenic assumption creates an ambiguity between state and society which Storck handles quickly by lumping together diverse practices over time as “state,” seemingly emphasizing their naturalness alongside an assertion that states exist as natural entities.
