Despre Principele lui Machiavelli
Revista de Ştiinţe Politice şi Relaţii Internaţionale (2014)
  • William J. Connell
With the intellectual refinement and elegance that characterizes
him, Prof. William J. Connell presents his new English translation of
Machiavelli’s Il Principe as a transposition which measures Machiavelli
in terms of the political and social context of Florence and Europe in the
Renaissance, which offers a more accurate account of the text and its
meanings and which is based on the interpretation that Machiavelli
wished to write a book that was shocking in an ironic way and that he
wished to show how complicated and unclear human action and its
motivations can be.
