It has become fashionable in recent years to see Machiavelli as something of a communitarian democrat, a champion of popular participation, social solidarity and the rule of law. This sanitised version contradicts the familiar portrait of Machiavelli as a treacherous foe of political morality, a sycophantic advisor to tyrants, and a forerunner of modern totalitarianism.
In this fresh and stimulating analysis of Machiavellis political thought, Joseph V. Femia steers a middle course between these two extremes, defending Machiavellis republican credentials without turning a blind eye to his more shocking pronouncements. The Machiavelli who emerges here rejected metaphysics and pioneered a pragmatic approach to politics governed by circumstances rather than abstract principles.
Femia argues that in fact Machiavelli can be seen as the founder of what we now refer to as liberal pluralism: the view, essential to modern democracy, that the primary purpose of politics is to resolve the competing claims of diverse values and interests.
Machiavelli Revisited offers a significant reinterpretation of one of the major figures in political theory, and demonstrates the continuing relevance of Machiavellis thought for the contemporary world.
Joseph V. Femia is Reader in Political Theory at the University of Liverpool, and the author of Marxism and Democracy (1993), The Machiavellian Legacy (1998) and Against the Masses (2001).
