Quote from a Harvard open course :
Now, Aristotle agrees that, by his own standards both of those conditions must be met, must be true if slavery is to be just, and then, in a deplorable passage, he says, well it is true that there are some people who are fit by nature, who are cut out to be slaves. These are people who differ from ordinary people in the same way that the body differs from the soul. These are people who are meant to be ruled, and for them, their nature is best realized if they are slaves. They can recognize reason in others, but they canít partake of it, they canít exercise it. And somehow we can know this.
What does "reason" mean here?
