Aristotle thought that people should use their senses to make observations. Aristotle noticed that democracies were run by the poor and that a government run by a few people were run by the rich. He believed the perfect government was run by both types of people. In addition, Aristotle taught his students at the Lyceum the "golden mean". That meant never to do anything in excess. For example, he taught not to eat too much or too little, but just enough to stay healthy

Aristotle made the 3 basic types of government, which are all used today in our modern world.

He also wanted a variety of different types of people in a government, and today we have many different types of people as leaders of our country.
