The Eccentric Core
David Levy explains and defends Machiavelliâs conception of liberty as conflict, and then uses that conception as the lens through which to understand his views on religion, war and imperialism, goodness and corruption, and the relation between republics and princes. Also discussed is Machiavelliâs own kind of wiliness: his artful and often ironic mode of writing. Levy shows that Machiavelliâs republican teaching as a whole remains persuasive today, and deserves careful consideration by all those concerned with the survival and the success of liberty.
This book will be of interest both to beginning and more advanced students of Machiavelli, as well as to students of modern republicanism and of the history of ideas.
