When the tyranny had been put down, there was a period of faction-strife between Isagoras son of Teisander, who was a friend of the tyrants, and Cleisthenes, who belonged to the family of the Alcmaeonidae. Cleisthenes having got the worst of it in the Comradeships enlisted the people on his side, offering to hand over the government to the multitude. [_translated by H. Rackham, M.A._]
καταλυθείσης δὲ τῆς τυραννίδος, ἐστασίαζον πρὸς ἀλλήλους Ἰσαγόρας ὁ Τεισάνδρου φίλος ὢν τῶν τυράννων, καὶ Κλεισθένης τοῦ γένους ὢν τῶν Ἀλκμεωνιδῶν. ἡττώμενος δὲ ταῖς ἑταιρείαις ὁ Κλεισθένης, προσηγάγετο τὸν δῆμον, ἀποδιδοὺς τῷ πλήθει τὴν πολιτείαν. Aristotle, Athenian Constitution 20 @perseus
ÜBERSETZUNG (KLP): Nachdem die Tyrannis zerstört war, begannen gegeneinander aufzustehen Isagoras, ein Freund des Teisanders und der Tyrannen, und Kleisthenes, einer aus dem Geschlecht der Alkmaioniden, der, weil er unterlegen war den Hetairien, begann {ingressiver Aorist} den Demos auf seine Seite zu ziehen {begann sich das Volk konziliant zu machen}, ausliefernd an den Pöbel Staat und Verfassung.
KOMMENTAR (KLP): Der demokratische Revolutionär Kleisthenes erscheint dem Girondisten aus Stageira wie ein gewissenloser Erzdemagoge und Hochverräter, der den athenischen Staat an den Pöbel verraten habe. Denn im ἀποδιδοὺς schwingt wegen des vorhergehenden προσηγάγετο ein vorwurfsvolles προδιδοὺς mit.

The Cassandra of the Revolution (MARAT) versus les hommes d’Etat (CONDORCET etc.)
Marat never ceased his denunciations of the faction des hommes d’Etat ("faction of the men of the State"), by which France was being betrayed to her ruin, and his cry of ‘Nous sommes trahis!’ ("We are betrayed!") was re-echoed from group to group in the streets of Paris.

The Girondist CONDORCET advocated ARISTOTLE (especially his ethical writings)
Girondist, La Gironde
Marquis de Condorcet (September 17, 1743 – March 28, 1794)
None of Condorcet’s writings refer a belief in a religion or a god who intervenes in human affairs. Condorcet instead frequently had written of his faith in humanity itself and its ability to progress with the help of ethical philosophers such as Aristotle. Through this accumulation and sharing of knowledge he believed it was possible for any man to comprehend all the known facts of the natural world. The enlightenment of the natural world spurred the desire for enlightenment of the social and political world. Condorcet believed that there was no definition of the perfect human existence and thus believed that the progression of the human race would inevitably continue throughout the course of our existence. He envisioned man as continually progressing toward a perfectly utopian society. However, he stressed that for this to be a possibility man must unify regardless of race, religion, culture or gender.
Schon der französische Philosoph und Revolutionär Condorcet wusste, dass ein Parlament allein noch keine Demokratie macht. @ liberalkonservative online (2010/8): In Condorcet’s Zeit als Akademiesekretär fällt auch der erste Konflikt mit dem Arzt Jean Paul Marat, der später zum wütigsten Radikalen der Revolution werden sollte. 1779 ersucht Marat mit einer obskuren gegen Newton gerichteten Schrift um Aufnahme in die Akademie der Wissenschaften und wird unter tatkräftiger Mithilfe Condorcets glatt abgelehnt (Goethe, selbst kein Freund Newtons, kritisierte diesen Vorgang später als wissenschaftlichen Despotismus). Das Beispiel zeigt, dass sich Condorcet der Verbindung von Wissens- und Machtfragen wohl bewusst ist.

National Constituent Assembly
(French: Assemblée nationale constituante) was formed from the National Assembly on 9 July 1789, during the first stages of the French Revolution. It dissolved on 30 September 1791 and was succeeded by the Legislative Assembly.
Legislative Assembly During the French Revolution, the Legislative Assembly was the legislature of France from 1 October 1791 to September 1792. It provided the focus of political debate and revolutionary law-making between the periods of the National Constituent Assembly and of the National Convention. – – – The Legislative Assembly was driven by two opposing groups. The members of the first group were primarily moderate members of the bourgeoisie that favored a constitutional monarchy, represented by the Feuillants, who felt that the revolution had already achieved its goal. The second group was the democratic faction, for whom the king could no longer be trusted, represented by the new members of the Jacobin club. This group claimed that more revolutionary measures were necessary.
National Convention During the French Revolution, the National Convention or Convention comprised the constitutional and legislative assembly which sat from 20 September 1792 to 26 October 1795 (the 4th of Brumaire of the year IV under the French Republican Calendar adopted by the Convention). It held executive power in France during the first years of the French First Republic. It was succeeded by the Directory, commencing 2 November 1795.

I don’t believe that Aristotle has been translated already. Not the translation of singular words is so very important (‘magistral-philiströs’) but to understand the meanings of the words in their contexts, to catch them with a hermeneutic net.
