Niccolo Macchiavelli - A Humanist
Display and Explanation
Definition and Evaluation
Today's Goal: 1. Define Humanism 2. Was Machiavelli a humanist?
Lived in the Italian city-state of Florence from 1469-1527 during the Renaissance. He was a politician and writer. He focused on government and tried to determine the best form of government.
My Greatest works, "The Prince" and "Discourses on Livy" show that I am a humanist like da Vinci. In "The Prince" I explain that leadership is all about power. A single leader must gain and maintain power through fear and can do anything necessary to maintain power. In "Discourses on Livy" I argue how a Republic is the best form of government.
Humanism is... Niccolo Machiavelli was/was not a humanist...
