Description:

The main objective of this paper is to discuss the main themes of Niccolo Machiavelli's writings, including "The Prince," and how these themes were a response to both the inherited ideas about politics and to the specific historical context in which the great theorist lived.

From the Paper:

"Machiavelli, like any other classical republican treated individual freedom in relation to the freedom of the state. He argued that a state could be said to be free when it is independent of external control by other states' rulers,
and when its rulership is exercised by the citizens and not
a single person or "prince."
