NATURAL LAW CONCEPTS IN PLATO AND ARISTOTLE'S WRITINGS

There is no unified definition for Natural Law. For Chandola Van, ‘‘every philosopher seems to have his or her definition of natural law.’’[1] However, for this overview, Natural law can be defined as a set of ‘‘standards of ethical conduct that can be known by all human beings without any special revelations from a supernatural source’’.
