Locke & Machiavelli
Politics and the Interests of Man

[ send me THIS paper ]
Machiavelli and Locke both considered the nature of government and man's individual interests as they relate to governmental structures. Machievelli's idea of fortune and Locke's 'state of nature' concept both shaped the theorists arguments about the purpose of political life. It has been posited that for Machiavelli, politics is an unpredictable arena in which ambition, deception and violence render the idea of the common good meaningless, while Locke would argue that political or civil society exists only to preserve the rights of the individual. It can be argued that for both Machiavelli and Lock, political activity, then, becomes merely a means of satisfying selfish ends. This 8 page paper considers the nature of this argument, reflects upon the elements presented in Machiavelli's Prince and Locke's Social Contract, and evaluates their importance for understanding the underpinnings of government.

Political Development Of Italy And England

The Athenian Thesis: Corresponding Observations from Machiavelli and Contemporary Writers
[ send me THIS paper ]
A 6 page discussion of the Athenian Thesis or Athenian Doctrine. Provides a concise definition of this thesis with the observation that no city is deterred by traditional morality from ruling where it can. Expands on this definition examining the inherent virtues and motivations of Sparta, Athens and even Machiavelli’s quest for his empire. Concludes that the Athenian thesis is indeed a part of a consistent view of the world. Although there would appear to be certain contradictions in this thesis such as the virtuous motivations of Sparta, for example, these contradictions appear to weigh themselves out with time. It becomes apparent on a more thorough consideration of this doctrine that even Sparta, despite her virtuous appearances has common goals with Athens or even Machiavelli. Sparta’s motivations center around the inability to expand safely rather than any superiority of virtue, just as on close inspection so do Machiavelli’s. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
