    Be Like the Fox: Machiavelli's Lifelong Quest for Freedom

    Evan rated it liked it Jun 06, 2017 The Tuscan city was then officially a republic; however, the Medici manipulated politics and alliances to extend their power in monarchic fashionTime and again he advocated variations of sentiments such as “victories are never secure without some respect, especially for justice” and “cities have never expanded either in dominion or in riches if they have not been in freedom”Clifton Campbell rated it liked it Apr 14, 2017 In mobster parlance, this was a 'balancing of accounts'.Machiavelli, born in Medicean Florence in 1469, was perhaps not quite the devious schemer of popular imaginationSoundCloud Benner provides us with a long list of dramatis personae at the start of the book, but it takes a reader with a better memory than mine to keep track of who’s vanquishing who, politically and bloodily

     

    Benner is a political philosopher whose previous works on Machiavelli have explored his ethics and, most recently, proposed a new reading of The Prince THE FINANCIAL TIMES LTD 2017Clement, in fact, licensed the first printed editions of Machiavellis works after the authors deathBut he did sometimes have to mask his true convictions, becoming a great artist of fox-like dissimulation: a master of disguise in dangerous timesNathaniel rated it it was amazing Nov 22, 2016 Due for release Be Like the Fox Machiavelli's Lifelong Quest for Freedom Erica Benner View more editions Hardback Hardback eBook BUY FROM Amazon Foyles Hive Waterstones WH Smith Share this title BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK'A rich, vivid and endlessly surprising portrayal of the man and his times' Tracey Borman, BBC History Magazine'Splendidly colourful In the book that followed it, the Discourses, he maintained his support for republics and wrote a dedication to his friends that said, “I have gone outside the common usage of those who address their works to some prince and, blinded by ambition and avarice, praise him for virtuous qualities when they should blame him for every part worthy of reproach.” So why, in between, did he write a book in praise of princes, dedicated to Lorenzo de’ Medici, to whom he pledged his “servitude”? Benner explains the apparent inconsistency by arguing that The Prince is written in two voices, one “impatient to set aside moral scruples for the sake of gaining an advantage”, the other more soberly recommending “policies that tend to produce lasting power and security”

     

    Undoubtedly, Medici money was at its most arrogant under the dictatorship of the merchant-poet Lorenzo de' Medici, whose supremacy was dramatically challenged in the Pazzi conspiracy of 1478Far from being a schemer, he believed that conspiracies are almost always misguided because, if they fail, the intended victim always “rises to greater power and many times from being a good man, becomes bad”Copyright 2017Beatrice Spengos marked it as to-read Mar 29, 2017 Coral Davies marked it as to-read Mar 06, 2017 Magazine article The Spectator 'Be like the Fox: Machiavelli's Lifelong Quest for Freedom', by Erica Benner - Review By Thomson, Ian Read preview Magazine article The Spectator 'Be like the Fox: Machiavelli's Lifelong Quest for Freedom', by Erica Benner - Review By Thomson, Ian Read preview Article excerpt The business of banking (from the Italian word banco, meaning 'counter') was essentially Italian in originHe decried the tendency of what he called the “Christian ‘sect’” to declare war on ideas it couldn’t controlFrom a historical point of view, however, her biographical method is not without its problemsIn an earlier generation, Machiavellis relatives had opposed the rise of the Medici as rulers of the city and had faced death and exile for itWhat we know of Machiavellis youth comes largely from his fathers ricordi a matter-of-fact diary recording purchases, contracts and moments of family importance

     

    Jason marked it as to-read Mar 09, 2017 When he says, “A prince should not care about the infamy of cruelty,” Brenner thinks he means itIn the 15 years before copies of The Prince started circulating, he had consistently advocated a Florentine republic, resisting an autocratic Medici revivalNiccols father, whose debts (probably inherited) excluded him from city office, kept his distance from politicsThe Financial Times and its journalism are subject to a self-regulation regime under the FT Editorial Code of Practice.By using our website, you agree to the use of cookies as described in our Privacy Policy But Machiavellis misogyny was not purely a private matterSorry!
