Aristotle is often represented as "the father of natural law." Nevertheless, many modern commentators deny the concept of natural law or natural right a legitimate place in his philosophical thought. This denial generally rests on two sorts of arguments: that it is impossible to construct a natural law interpretation of Aristotle which is consistent with all of the texts, and that the natural law claims in particular are manifestly too inconsistent with well attested Aristotelian doctrines for it to be credible to attribute them to him.
