The Prince
8,49 € *

Niccolò Machiavelli´s brutally uncompromising manual of statecraft, The Prince is translated and edited with an introduction by Tim Parks in Penguin Classics. As a diplomat in turbulent fifteenth-century Florence, Niccolò Machiavelli knew how quickly political fortunes could rise and fall. The Prince, his tough-minded, pragmatic handbook on how power really works, made his name notorious and has remained controversial ever since. How can a leader be strong and decisive, yet still inspire loyalty in his followers? When is it necessary to break the rules? Is it better to be feared than loved? Examining regimes and their rulers the world over and throughout history, from Roman Emperors to renaissance Popes, from Hannibal to Cesare di Borgia, Machievalli answers all these questions in a work of realpolitik that still has shrewd political lessons for today. Tim Parks´s acclaimed contemporary translation renders Machiavelli´s no-nonsense original as alarming and enlightening as when it was first written. His introduction discusses Machiavelli´s life and reputation, and explores the historical background to the work. Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527) was born in Florence, and served the Florentine republic as a secretary and second chancellor, as ambassador and foreign policy-maker. When the Medici family returned to power in 1512 he was suspected of conspiracy, imprisoned and tortured and forced to retire from public life. His most famous work, The Prince, was written in an attempt to gain favour with the Medicis and return to politics. If you enjoyed The Prince , you might like Plato´s Republic , also available in Penguin Classics. ´A gripping work, and a gripping translation´ Nicholas Lezard, Guardian ´Tim Parks´s swift and supple new translation brings out all its chilling modernity´ Boyd Tonkin, Independent

Nietzsche: Thus Spoke Zarathustra
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Nietzsche regarded ´Thus Spoke Zarathustra´ as his most important work, and his story of the wandering Zarathustra has had enormous influence on subsequent culture. Nietzsche uses a mixture of homilies, parables, epigrams and dreams to introduce some of his most striking doctrines, including the Overman, nihilism, and the eternal return of the same. This edition offers a new translation by Adrian Del Caro which restores the original versification of Nietzsche´s text and captures its poetic brilliance. Robert Pippin´s introduction discusses many of the most important interpretative issues raised by the work, including who is Zarathustra and what kind of ´hero´ is he and what is the philosophical significance of the work´s literary form The volume will appeal to all readers interested in one of the most original and inventive works of modern philosophy.
