Niccoló Machiavelli : the laughing lion and the strutting fox

Author: Raymond A Belliotti
Publisher: Lanham : Lexington Books, 2009.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book places Machiavelli in historical context but argues that his understanding of moral conflicts is well ahead of his time. Instead of arguing for the autonomy of politics, as is commonly supposed, Machiavelli grapples with the special problems of role-differentiated morality, where the duties of public office often conflict with the demands of conventional morality.
