About this product
- DescriptionConflict, Power and Multitude in Machiavelli and Spiza explores Spiza's political philosophy by confronting it with that of Niccolo Machiavelli. Filippo Del Lucchese conducts a study of the relationship between Machiavelli and Spiza from a perspective at once philosophical, historical and political. The book begins by showing how closely tied the two thinkers are in relation to realism. Del Lucchese then goes on to examine the theme of conflict as a crucial element of an understanding of Machiavelli and Spiza's conceptions of modernity. The book concludes with an examination of the concept of 'multiplicity' and 'plural' expressions of politics, namely Machiavelli's popolo and Spiza's multitudo. Overall, the Machiavelli-Spiza axis offers a fruitful perspective through which to analyse the relationship between contending ideas of modernity from a historical point of view, and provides an original point of departure for discussing some key theoretical, political and juridical tions that have resurfaced in contemporary debates.
