Jump to navigation Jump to search This article is about the book by Niccolò Machiavelli.
16th-century political treatise by the Italian diplomat and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. Although it was written as if it were a traditional work in the mirrors for princes style, it is generally agreed that it was especially innovative. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. Although it is relatively short, the treatise is the most remembered of Machiavelli’s works and the one most responsible for bringing the word “Machiavellian” into usage as a pejorative. It even contributed to the modern negative connotations of the words “politics” and “politician” in western countries. He who neglects what is done for what ought to be done, sooner effects his ruin than his preservation. Each part of The Prince has been commented on over centuries.
