Lectures on Niccolò Machiavelli (The Discourses on Livy)

Niccolò Machiavelli is one of the most important philosophers and arguably one of the catalysts of modernity. He is famous for his short work, a Primer for Princes, also known as The Prince. But his other great work, The Discourses on Livy, is more profound and deals with politics, religion, liberty, slavery, and civilization. In this series of online lectures, I explain and explore the core concepts of Machiavelli’s epic masterpiece of philosophy and politics.

LECTURE ONE: SUMMARY & ANALYSIS OF THE DISCOURSES ON LIVY

LECTURE TWO: LIBERTY & SLAVERY IN THE DISCOURSES

LECTURE THREE: WHAT IS LIBERTY ACCORDING TO MACHIAVELLI?

LECTURE FOUR: MACHIAVELLI ON RELIGION
