In the fourth century BCE, the Greek philosopher Aristotle made a basic observation about the ancient Greek polis in a treatise known today as the Politics. Here is the original Greek wording, ho anthrōpos phusei politikon zōion (Aristotle Politics I 1253a2–3), which can be translated literally this way: ‘A human [anthrōpos] is by nature an organism of the polis [politikon zōion]’
