    This short book is an excellent production by the French Structural Marxist Louis Althusser Written in a cool, clear style, Althusser presents a picture of Machiavelli in contradiction to the two major streams of interpretation though, by his own admission, it is not strictly an interpretation The work is not especially dense and gives a good outline of The Prince and the Discourses For anyone looking for an introduction to Machiavelli s work, and loosely an introduction to Marxist politics, on [...]

    In this book, Althusser interprets Machiavellian theories of national state through texts of Discourses and The Prince A remarkable book, not only a part of Marxist political canon, but also an analytical text of what statecraft has founded on.

    En un extraordinario texto escrito en su per odo de reclusi n, Louis Althusser lee a Maquiavelo y hace la muy razonable pregunta sobre si El Pr ncipe debe ser considerado un manifiesto pol tico revolucionario A fin de aplicarse a esta cuesti n, Althusser intenta primero definir la forma manifiesto en tanto g nero espec fico de texto, comparando las caracter sticas de El Pr ncipe con aquellas del manifiesto pol tico paradigm tico, el Manifiesto del Partido Comunista de Marx y Engels Halla entre e [...]

    Just as Marx founds a seminal materialist science of history demarcated from a subject in Reading Capital, so too does Machiavelli invent a philosophy of politics from the aleatory void in Machiavelli and Us Not only does the publication of The Prince mark the first time political practice appears in a theoretical text, but importantly, it introduces the reader to his totally original experimental method in which a composite thesis is made up of contradictory theses that are positively determin [...]

    As someone who loves Machiavelli and all his works I found this to be the best companion work I could ask for Althusser breaks down the way some of the most important Machiavelli readers have interpreted him while providing a new and thoughtful way of looking at the first Modern man.I am sure I would use portions of this book if I ever teach a section on Machiavelli or even the history of dissent.

    I m convinced Althusser didn t mention Machiavelli frequently only because the similarities are so patent Hard to read The Prince s statements on the people and the spectacle of power, and not think of Althusser s writings on the production of the subject.

    Exactly what you d expect a book by Althusser to say about Machiavelli Whether that s a good or bad thing, I m not sure.

    Bel volume, interessante, completo e con una tesi di fondo molto convincente, ovvero l impegno di Machiavelli verso la creazione di un progetto politico particolare l unit d Italia.
