On May 20, 2022, the Christendom College will be hosting a lecture on Machiavelli with JMC fellow Joseph Brutto. The lecture will be broadcast online for those who wish to attend virtually:
The use of the term Machiavellian has become synonymous with deceit and corruption in politics. But what did Machiavelli actually teach? In this lecture we will briefly explore some of Machiavelli’s teaching from his most famous writing, The Prince. The goal is to provide a basic introduction to Machiavelli’s teaching and to explore their influence on the politics of the present day.
