Aristotle grounds a lot of what Plato says in reality, but he is just so much less interesting to read. Studying Plato is so much fun, but Aristotle just feels like a textbook.

I'd prefer materialism (Aristotle, Democritus) over idealism (Plato/Socrates).
A government led by philosophers? Nope..
Be practical.

You can also call it an early example of empiricism (basis of science) vs rationalism (pure thought based worldview which isn't always "rational").
