Chicago Humanities Fest is Here!

Machiavelli and the Body Politic: An Analysis of The Prince

What questions come to mind when you consider Machiavelli’s approach to politics and power?

Was The Prince a satire or did he really believe in the power of the tyrant?

Do the ends REALLY justify the means?

Can a republic (or a democracy) only be ruled by a leader like The Prince?

Should the Art of War be used as a guidebook for marital disputes? (The Roses)

Here are the rest of my picks for the Fest. What are YOU going to see?
