A 6 page discussion of the Athenian Thesis or Athenian Doctrine. Provides a concise definition of this thesis with the observation that no city is deterred by traditional morality from ruling where it can.

Concludes that the Athenian thesis is indeed a part of a consistent view of the world. Although there would appear to be certain contradictions in this thesis such as the virtuous motivations of Sparta, for example, these contradictions appear to weigh themselves out with time.
