Rather, quite apart from such biological considerations, human beings are truly the zōon politikon because to be human means: in a community, to carry in oneself the possibility and the necessity of giving form to and fulfilling one’s own Being and the Being of the community. Human beings are a zōon politikon because they have the strength and the capacity for the polis, and here the polis is not conceived as something already subsisting in advance, but rather as something to which human beings can and must give form.
We then asked the further formal question: what character and form does the people give itself in the state, and what character and form does the state give to the people? The form of an organism? Impossible, because when we ask about the state we are asking about the essence of man, and not about the essence of an organism. The form of order? That is too general, since I can order everything— stones, books, and so on. But what hits the mark is an order in the sense of mastery, rank, leadership, and following.
In the Now time gets its meaning for us. This is why the Now has precedence over the After and the Before, and from the perspective of the Now, Before and After even appear to be nothing. For only the Now really is; the Before is no longer and the After is not yet. We cannot hold on to the Now, because in every moment another Now is the Now. The Now thus seems to have fundamental significance for calculus as the limit transition or infinitesimal that dissolves the contradiction that lies in the essence of the continuum.
