The Prince, written by Niccolò Machiavelli in 1513 and published in 1532 posthumously, is one of the most controversial pieces of writing in the world, even from the moment it was presented to ´´The Magnificent Lorenzo di Piero de´Medici”. Machiavelli was already considered a controversial figure in his time, and this fact, along with his imprisonment, torture, and banishment by the newly reinstated Medici regime, is the most likely reason for its rejection by its intended recipient. It is written like a letter of advice to the new prince from someone who understands through experience and wisdom how to maintain a ´´principality”. This treatise is credited with the coining of the term ´´Machiavellian”. Generally, this is a negative term referring to corrupt and ´´evil” politicians, who will use immoral behavior, such as lying, stealing, and even murder, to get what they want. If this turns out to be good for the many, they take credit for it as having done something bad in order to make something good happen. This ´´ends justify the means” philosophy is thought to have been started by Machiavelli, although this exact phrasing is not used in his writing and his actual meaning is typically taken out of context. However, the basic idea behind the ends justifying the means theory is evident. Despite the controversy surrounding the title, The Prince is thought to be the most popular political book in history. It is still read to this day and many find useful leadership lessons from Machiavelli. While most scholars and philosophers think Machiavelli was advocating evil and cruelty, others such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Denis Diderot found that modern democratic politics were inspired by Machiavelli´s writings. Machiavelli spends much time in The Prince discussing principalities: how a prince comes to rule over one, how to maintain it, and giving examples of other rulers who either failed or succeeded in maintain 1.
