2014 - Reading Log (11 books items)

""It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both." Machiavelli's prose is very technical, but masterful by all means. The translation was, this time, awesome (I just got sort of a crappy one for Notes from the Underground, even though the book itself was excellent) and the book flows remarkably well for a political treatise. But the books's true genius is the philosophy from which it stems: it was truly impactful and even scary, in some aspects; the tactics Machiavelli employs are c"

Kirjapäivyri 2014 (6 books items)

"Machiavellin jonkin sortin työhakemus Medici-suvun ruhtinaalle. Ilmeisesti ruhtinas ei lukenut sitä koskaan, mutta monet muut hallitsijat ovat ottaneet oppia teoksen neuvoista hallitsemisen suhteen. Julmaa reaalipolitiikkaa koko lyhyt teos, missä naminami-jutut loistavat poissaolollaan. Siitä huolimatta, että kyseessä on Machiavellin selkeästi tunnetuin teos, niin se ei silti siitä huolimatta ole mahdollisesti paras teos tutustua Machiavellin poliittisiin ajatuksiin. Machiavellin "Valtio"

Art of Manliness - 100 Must-Read Books (101 books items)

"Considered by most to be the authoritative text on statesmanship and power (how to obtain it as well as an illustration of its trappings), although certainly a shrewd one. From this arises an argument: whether it is better to be loved than feared. I reply that one should like to be both one and the other; but since it is difficult to join them together, it is much safer to be feared than to be loved when one of the two must be lacking. Essentially, Machiavelli advocates letting your people hav"

Banned, Burned, Censored (94 books items)

"In the 16th century, the Roman Catholic Church, placed Machiavelli’s The Prince on the Index of Prohibited Books in the “banned absolutely” category for its “heretical” content."
