By Maurizio Viroli
In Redeeming "The Prince," one of many world's best Machiavelli students places forth a startling new interpretation of arguably the main influential yet largely misunderstood ebook within the Western political culture. Overturning well known misconceptions and tough scholarly consensus, Maurizio Viroli additionally presents a clean creation to the paintings. visible from this unique point of view, 5 centuries after its composition, The Prince bargains new insights into the character and probabilities of political liberation.
Rather than a bible of unscrupulous politics, The Prince, Viroli argues, is de facto approximately political redemption--a ebook encouraged via Machiavelli's patriotic wish to see a brand new founding for Italy. Written within the type of an oration, following the foundations of classical rhetoric, the ebook condenses its major message within the ultimate part, "Exhortation to free up Italy from the Barbarians." There Machiavelli creates the parable of a redeemer, a terrific ruler who ushers in an period of peace, freedom, and solidarity. opposite to students who retain that the exhortation was once extra later, Viroli proves that Machiavelli composed it in addition to the remainder of the textual content, finishing the entire via December 1513 or early 1514.
Only if we learn The Prince as a idea of political redemption, Viroli contends, do we ultimately comprehend, and correctly review, the book's so much debatable pages on political morality, in addition to placed to relaxation the cliché of Machiavelli as a "Machiavellian."
Bold, transparent, and provocative, Redeeming "The Prince" may still completely swap how Machiavelli and his masterpiece are understood.
