Reviews - What do customers think about El Principe / the Prince (Spanish Edition)?

Essential reading in any language  Feb 24, 2007
If my Spanish were better, I would be a better judge on the comments about this being a poor translation. Having read it in English, and now plowing slowly through it in Spanish, I find it enlightening, for the second language opens up new meanings. Machiavelli did not advocate the things he wrote about, he merely chronicled what he saw, and advised his Prince of ways others had come to power, clung to power, and abused power. He was the political genius of his day, and no education today is complete without having read and studied him in at least one language.

Hey! It's friggin' Spanish!

Just thought you should know before you took the plunge.

Para entender por que estamos tan mal...  Oct 25, 2003
Definitivamente, muchos gobernantes, funcionarios, politicos, hombres de empresa, etc. han tomado a El Principe como un manual. Si alguna vez nos hemos preguntado por que las obras de los politicos no terminan de traer el bien comun en la mayoria de los paises, aqui encontraremos una parte de la respuesta. Para resumir el libro en una frase, Maquiavelo dice que el fin justifica los medios. La crueldad, la perfidia y la intriga son medios para que el gobernante conserve e incremente el Estado. Leer directamente EL PRINCIPE de Maquiavelo, nos puede dejar con un malestar interno, asi que para digerirlo mejor y entender a Maquiavelo, recomiendo leerlo junto con el espectacular ensayo NICOLAS MAQUIAVELO EN SU QUINTO CENTENARIO por ANTONIO GOMEZ ROBLEDO. Este ensayo viene como prologo a la edicion de EL PRINCIPE de Editorial Porrua (Mexico).
Amazing  Aug 5, 2000
I am a frequent consumer of the so called sub-literature (like most teenagers), but forgive me my dear friends Anne Rice, Marion Bradley, Stephen King, Sidney Sheldon, etc... I love your work, but finally I found myself reading a DECENT and INTELLIGENT and USEFUL book by a genious called Maquiavelo. "The Prince" deserves to be used as a manual, not barely read... I don't say it should be followed blindly, though it should be mentally discussed by all. ESSENTIAL READING !
Maquiavelo... algunas veces mal interpretado...  Apr 14, 2000
En la obra de Maquiavelo se refleja el pensamiento del Renacimiento en su forma más original, libre y abierto despojado de toda preocupación metafísica, dirigido totalmente a observar la realidad humana y describir científicamente las normas y los fines inmediatos que regulan y orientan su desarrollo. El príncipe debe estar dispuesto a obrar contra la fe, contra la religión, si el fin así lo requiere.

La filosofía realista y pesimista de Maquiavelo tiene poco que ver con lo que, con evidente malafe, se llamó más adelante "maquiavelismo", deformando su pensamiento, pues cuando el secretario florentino hablaba de política, se refería a los intereses y modos propios de la política y no a la moralidad, y cuando aducía que el fin justifica los medios, quería significar fin y medios políticos, y nunca formular una cínica norma espiritual de vida.
