Machiavelli In Hell - Paperback

2000, ISBN: 9780679743422

ID: 1008854476

Princeton. 1994. Vintage Books. 1st Vintage Books Paperback Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 497 pages. January 1994. paperback. Sebastian de Grazia (1917- 2000) was a Pulitzer Prize–winning author. Born in Chicago, he received his bachelor's degree and a doctorate in political science from the University of Chicago. During World War II he served in the Office of Strategic Services, predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency as an analyst. In 1962-1988 he taught political philosophy at Rutgers University. He received the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography for his 1989 book Machiavelli in Hell. He is also the author of The Political Community (1948), Errors of Psychotherapy (1952), and A Country with No Name (1997). De Grazia has been described as the father of leisure. Of Time, Work, and Leisure (1962) puts forward the idea that traditionally leisure was not a matter of recreation as much as of contemplation, of expanding one's awareness and understanding of the world, and that the social context of this understanding of leisure has to a large extent been lost, and with it the notion of leisure being the pursuit of philosophy. 0679743421. keywords: 42184. inventory # 42047. FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Finally a book free of the interminable religious and idealistic bickerings over Machiavelli, and critically up-to-date in scholarship. An exhilarating work, restoring Machiavelli to us as his contemporaries probably knew him. The harvest of quotations alone supplies the reader with the best provisions for a journey into Machiavelli’s texts.’ -Sergio Bertelii, Editor of Machiavelli: Opera Omnia. In this intellectual biography Sebastian de Grazia presents a new Machiavelli-in a way that gives an almost uncanny sense of the great Florentine thinker’s presence. After telling the story of Machiavelli’s childhood and the period of personal crisis that followed his imprisonment and torture, the book turns to The Prince. Thence- forth the facts of biography-Machiavelli’s home, journeys, fears and joys, works, friends, and loves-never cease to weave in and out of the narrative as his ideas gather power and come together to form a unified vision of humankind and the world. Convinced that a good political leader or ‘prince new’ would have to engage in acts of cruelty and bad faith, Machiavelli faces a predicament: how to justify this evil to prospective leaders themselves and to people at large. He cannot dispense with their fear of God’s judgment, for he holds it to be essential to political community. MACHIAVELLI IN HELL offers a profound and skillful exploration of how he penetrated this difficulty. To do so, he had to work out a new statecraft, invent a new moral reasoning, and redimension heaven and hell. Drawing on all of Machiavelli’s writings, from carnival songs to major political works, de Grazia bases the book on Machiavelli’s own words. He uses his own translations of Machiavelli, including many passages never before translated into English. ‘This is the best work I have read on Machiavelli. It is unique in that it considers him explicitly as a moralist and moral philosopher, and it presents through this viewpoint a new and exciting reading of his work. The book achieves remarkable results of clarity and depth and, above all, offers a complete view of the figure of Machiavelli. The author has brilliantly interwoven philosophical-political analysis with biographical details.’ - Rosario Villari, University of Rome. ‘MACHIAVELLI IN HELL is the best-integrated and most thorough, searching treatment of Machiavelli I have encountered. De Grazia brings Machiavelli’s experiences, personality, and milieu together with his political and literary writings to produce a convincing historical being with a consistent and unified vision of man and the world. De Grazia probes deeply into Machiavelli’s language, its usages and resonances, and its relation to classical, Christian and Florentine tradition and finds the meanings appropriate to a consistent reading of the text.’ - Donald Weinstein, University of Arizona.

[SR: 51295], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780679743422], Vintage, Vintage, Book, [PU: Vintage], 1994-01-13, Vintage, Machiavelli in Hell In this intellectual biography, de Grazia presents a new vision of Niccolo Machiavelli that evokes the great Florentine thinker's presence. After giving an engrossing account of Machiavelli's childhood and period of personal crisis that followed his imprisonment and torture, the book turns to an examination of The Prince. Photos., This intellectual biography of the 16th century Italian quotes exclusively from Machiavelli's own words rather than quoting others who commented upon him. In this way de Grazia, a professor at Rutgers, paints a colorful portrait of the man entirely in the context of his time. In The Prince Machiavelli had famously examined the dilemma of the ruler who must find a resolution between political necessity and ethical behavior. By thus inventing 'realpolitik' Machiavelli entered the language of political discourse, and got himself rather a bad name. De Grazia's book, which won a Pulitzer Prize, goes some way to rehabilitating him, suggesting that his immoral means were put to good political ends., 56859011, Politiker, 56858011, Politiker & Persönlichkeiten, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 56880011, Philosophen, 56874011, Fachleute & Akademiker, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 69077011, Politik, 69106011, Aktivismus, 1321875031, Arbeitsverhältnisse, 1321874031, Frieden & Sicherheit, 69091011, Führung, 69079011, Geschichte & Theorie, 69090011, Gewerkschaften, 69098011, Globalisierung, 69080011, Ideologien, 69083011, International, 69105011, Lobbying, 69107011, Menschenrechte, 1321876031, Nachschlagewerke, 69097011, Politik der USA, 69092011, Politische Parteien, 1321877031, Raumordnung, 69093011, Realpolitik, 69096011, Soziale Sicherheit, 69028011, Sachbücher, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher
