Definitivamente, muchos gobernantes, funcionarios, politicos, hombres de empresa, etc. han tomado a El Principe como un manual. Si alguna vez nos hemos preguntado por que las obras de los politicos no terminan de traer el bien comun en la mayoria de los paises, aqui encontraremos una parte de la respuesta. Para resumir el libro en una frase, Maquiavelo dice que el fin justifica los medios. La crueldad, la perfidia y la intriga son medios para que el gobernante conserve e incremente el Estado. Leer directamente EL PRINCIPE de Maquiavelo, nos puede dejar con un malestar interno, asi que para digerirlo mejor y entender a Maquiavelo, recomiendo leerlo junto con el espectacular ensayo NICOLAS MAQUIAVELO EN SU QUINTO CENTENARIO por ANTONIO GOMEZ ROBLEDO. Este ensayo viene como prologo a la edicion de EL PRINCIPE de Editorial Porrua (Mexico).

I am a frequent consumer of the so called sub-literature (like most teenagers), but forgive me my dear friends Anne Rice, Marion Bradley, Stephen King, Sidney Sheldon, etc... I love your work, but finally I found myself reading a DECENT and INTELLIGENT and USEFUL book by a genious called Maquiavelo. "The Prince" deserves to be used as a manual, not barely read... I don't say it should be followed blindly, though it should be mentally discussed by all. ESSENTIAL READING !

Format: Paperback
En la obra de Maquiavelo se refleja el pensamiento del Renacimiento en su forma más original, libre y abierto despojado de toda preocupación metafísica, dirigido totalmente a observar la realidad humana y describir científicamente las normas y los fines inmediatos que regulan y orientan su desarrollo. El príncipe debe estar dispuesto a obrar contra la fe, contra la religión, si el fin así lo requiere.
La filosofía realista y pesimista de Maquiavelo tiene poco que ver con lo que, con evidente malafe, se llamó más adelante "maquiavelismo", deformando su pensamiento, pues cuando el secretario florentino hablaba de política, se refería a los intereses y modos propios de la política y no a la moralidad, y cuando aducía que el fin justifica los medios, quería significar fin y medios políticos, y nunca formular una cínica norma espiritual de vida.

He disfrutado enormente este clasico editado con tanta Claridad. Me resulto muy util para estudiar, ya que otras versiones que encontré adolescian de muchos errores ortográficos y de compaginación

ESTA LLENO DE CONSEJOR DE MALDAD, QUE ES LO QUE MAS ABUNDA EN EL MUNDO, LA MENTIRA Y LA MALDAD, PARA MANTENERSE EN EL PODER A TODA COSTA, EN ESTOS MOMENTO ESTE LIBRO PIERDE VIGENCIA, Y CADA VEZ TENDRA MENOS LECTORES, AHORA SERIA UN ANALFABETO.

Interesting book, and interesting thinking. I was curious about it since long, I am glad that I've read it. I cannot understand, though, that "machiavelic" has got such a negative connotation; I guess if I had "adapted" better to some "irregularities" in some aspects of my life, instead of keeping being "rigtht", I would have a better life now.
A good approach to life.
