MACHIAVELLI AND THE LEGITIMIZATION OF REALISM IN INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
LUMEN – Copyright © 2009 – Colecția DEZVOLTARE SOCIALĂ
The conceptual delineation between the sphere of political ideas and political activity has never represented a strong borderline for the continuous processes and influences that were exerted from one part to the other. In numerous occasions, political ideas were practically transformed into genuine guidelines that were intended to facilitate the art of statecraft for those that were in the ruling position. However, there are also famous cases in which ideas lack the potential to materialize and, thus, stagnate from this point of view, transforming themselves into sheer utopias aimed at raising public or simply elite awareness on certain issues. Considered by many the founding father of the discipline of political science, a proponent of civic humanism or simply blamed as an extremely wicked, immoral and irreligious intellectual, Niccolo Machiavelli has been the target of overwhelmingly long scholar debates that did not manage to integrate him into strict categories. Having written a prolific literature on political issues, Machiavelli himself became the subject of even more numerous works than his own. (Autoarea)
