The Originality of Machiavelli THERE is something surprising about the sheer number of inter- pretations of Machiavelli's political 0pinions.l There exist, even now, over a score of leading theories of how to interpret The Prince and The Discourses - apart from a cloud of subsidiary views and e Size: KB.   Throughout the book, the reader is in considerable doubt as to whether the author is more interested in expressing Machiavelli’s thought through erudite analysis or seeking to convey his own under the cover of discussing Machiavelli. The first chapter of the book examines the two-fold character of Machiavelli’s political thought in that it.

By: Niccolò Machiavelli () Machiavelli has created a ruthless guide on how to rule the country in his volume "The Prince". The book is dedicated to Lorenzo De Medici, the ruler of Florence. The author explains in simple language about the nature of great men and the characters of the government.5/5(10). If Machiavelli had a political purpose in mind in writing the book, as I believe he did, it was an aspiration for the unification of Italy under a single strong leader to liberate Italy from the foreign ‘barbarians’, something that would not happen for another years.

The book that so appalled Cardinal Pole was the Prince, and the name of its author Niccolò Machiavelli. Aghast and intrigued, Pole was determined to find out more about the man who could write.   Nearly years ago, an exiled ex-politician named Niccolo Machiavelli wrote The Prince, a little book of advice for those who would set out to conquer other countries. Almost instantly, his name.

Living in a tumultuous era, filled with political and religious conflicts, warring city-states, and a continent ruled by a government who used the church to control and conquer, an exiled Machiavelli wrote the book The Prince to give politicians a basis on how to rule a nation and as a way to continue to make a statement in Florence’s politics.

In this reading, I seen 5 points that Machiavelli talked about, and those were: Free Will, Being Hated vs Goodwill, Virtue, A Good Military, and finally Human Nature. These are a necessity to the recipe that Machiavelli is making in this book. In the first few chapters of the book, Machiavelli begins.

It is the cry of a far later day than Machiavelli's that government should be elevated into a living moral force, capable of inspiring the people with a just recognition of the fundamental principles of society; to this "high argument" "The Prince" contributes but little.

Review: Thoughts on Machiavelli User Review - mwr - Goodreads. Strauss always makes good on his promise to demonstrate the folly of insisting that everything has a meaning, but you can't read this book without realizing how poorly you read Machiavelli the first time.

There are a few nice observations, though. Read full review5/5(3). At the beginning of Chapter IV of Thoughts on Machiavelli (), Leo Strauss comments that books like the Discourses and The Prince “do not reveal their full meaning as intended by the author unless one ponders over them ‘day and night’ for a long time.” The same could be said for Thoughts on ch Meier, in his new book, Political Philosophy and the Challenge of.

About this Title: Volume 2 of a 4 volume set of Machiavelli’s writings which contains a lengthy introduction on the life of Machiavelli, the History of Florence, The Prince, Discourses on Livy, and his letters and papers from his time as a diplomat.

This volume contains his famous and notorious advice to The Prince that ruthlessness in seeking and maintaining political power is essential to. The book is The Prince, its author Niccolò Machiavelli. Minus television and Twitter, it seems the techniques of ambitious “new princes”, as he calls them, haven’t changed a bit.‘The Prince’ remains a must read book to this day and is often regarded as the go to book for budding diplomats.

In addition to that, Machiavelli was also a poet, historian and music composer during his rather eventful life. However, it was as a political thinker that he is most renowned.

Many of his words have become popular quotes over time.
