Machiavelli’s The Prince and Rousseau’s The Discourses

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: October 17, 2022, 18:00 – 20:00

Whatever way we look at it, Machiavelli’s The Prince changed the way we think about the nature of politics. Rousseau’s The Discourses, meanwhile, changed our thinking about democracy. Both essential works of modern political theory are coming out in new, erudite and expertly annotated translations with accompanying texts that explore the period context, the authors’ lives and contemporary research.

Translators Jan Bíba and Hana Fořtová will present the books and Milan Znoj will moderate.

The evening takes place with the kind support of the Sekyra Foundation.
