Writing as a vertigo: Machiavelli, Sovereignity and the “Middle Class”

COVER DEF_GCSI_2_20.jpg

Abstract

A reading of Machiavelli beyond the opposite radicalisms, of left and right wing interpreters. Beyond the “mythology of doctrines”, toward a search of the rhetorical discourse, and of the writing as a “vertigo”. The core of the “classic” as the acceptance of the failures and the limits of thought.

Keywords

Machiavelli, Intellectual History, Rhetorics, Sovereignity, Bourgeosie, Great Books.
