Niccolò Machiavelli, the Italian Renaissance historian, politician, diplomat, philosopher and humanist, is regarded by many as the founder of modern political science. His most renowned work, ‘The Prince’, continues to cause great controversy for its advocacy of immoral and ruthless actions in politics. Due to this notorious text, the term “Machiavellian” is often associated with political deceit and deviousness; nevertheless, Machiavelli’s writings were also an inspiration to Enlightenment proponents of modern democratic political philosophy This comprehensive eBook presents Machiavelli’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
