The Prince Audiobook

The Prince

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: Joseph Wycoff Release Date: March 2022

Given the tumultuous political era in which he lived, Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527), the Italian Renaissance author, philosopher, historian and diplomat, had a front-row seat to observe the political machinations, power struggles and dynastic changes in Renaissance Europe. He would compile these observations in 'The Prince,' which would swiftly gain a reputation both as a simple treatise on how to achieve and wield political power as well as an immoral, by-the-numbers account of how tyrants can seize and maintain dictatorships. As a result of the teachings in this book, Machiavelli's very name has become an adjective - 'Machiavellian' - that has come to denote political deception, cold-blooded calculation and the use of treachery as a means to seize power. It is presented here in its original and unabridged format, translated from the Italian by Luigi Ricci.

The Prince [unabridged]

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: Eric Nutting Release Date: October 2021

The Prince is a classic work of political philosophy by famous political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. A phrase often associated with this work is “the ends justify the means.” In other words, Machiavelli believed that acts of cruelty or lawbreaking were justifiable if the purpose of such acts was to advance one’s own power and chances of survival. The adjective “Machiavellian” refers to behaving in a way that aligns with Machiavelli’s philosophy. To this day, Machiavelli’s philosophy is controversial. Whether you’re a scholar or lover of philosophy classics, look no further than this edition of The Prince. If you’re seeking high quality audio, crisp narration, and unabridged excellence at a bottom-dollar price, then you are in the right place. Do not take my word for it- go ahead and listen to the free audio sample and make your own decision. Listen with caution, dear reader, and try not to apply the philosophy of Niccolò Machiavelli to your everyday life.

The Art of War Audiobook

The Art of War

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: Clive Catterall Release Date: June 2021

The Art of War (Italian: Dell'arte della guerra) is a treatise by the Italian Renaissance political philosopher and historian Niccolò Machiavelli. The format of The Art of War is a socratic dialogue. The purpose, declared by Lord Fabrizio Colonna (perhaps Machiavelli's persona) at the outset, 'To honor and reward virtù, not to have contempt for poverty, to esteem the modes and orders of military discipline, to constrain citizens to love one another, to live without factions, to esteem less the private than the public good.' To these ends, Machiavelli notes in his preface, the military is like the roof of a palazzo protecting the contents. Written between 1519 and 1520 and published the following year, it was Machiavelli's only historical or political work printed during his lifetime, though he was appointed official historian of Florence in 1520 and entrusted with minor civil duties. This translation by Henry Neville was published in 1675 when The Art of War was still considered a practical military manual.

Strategy Masters: The Prince, The Art of War, and The Gallic Wars Audiobook

Strategy Masters: The Prince, The Art of War, and The Gallic Wars

Author: Julius Caesar, Niccolo Machiavelli, Sun Tzu Narrator: Robert Brinkman, Seth Thompson Release Date: January 2021

Learn from the best military strategists of history how best to fight your battles in Strategy Masters. This collection includes three major military and political strategy texts: The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, and The Gallic Wars by Julius Caesar. These three books, though written specifically about military and political strategies, are frequently cited by modern business strategists as insightful looks at human nature and philosophy. The Prince – The main philosophy in The Prince is that a good ruler is one that always works for the benefit of the state, even when this requires acting immorally or unethically. Basically, the ends justify the means, even if the means are killing innocent people, blackmailing, and being deceitful. Whether this key idea is agreed with or not, its impact on political thought cannot be denied. The Art of War - Sun Tzu’s The Art of War is one of the most well-known works of military tactical writing in the world. Written in 500 B.C. in China, this book presents military strategies and wisdom that has been enjoyed for over 2000 years. Leaders across generations have been inspired the ideas of Sun Tzu – his management philosophies can apply to both a battlefield and a board room. The Gallic Wars - During Julius Caesar’s reign over Rome, he fought and led in several large battles across the continent, seeking to expand the empire and unite the continent into one large dominion. For 9 years, his conquests took place against Germanic and Celtic people who opposed the Roman Empire. The Gallic Wars is his narrative retelling of this conquest. It is often studied by students of the Latin language for its clarity and for its representation of the important political and historical issues of the Roman Empire’s inhabitants.

Il Principe: di Niccolò Machiavelli Audiobook

Il Principe: di Niccolò Machiavelli

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: Renzo Clerico Release Date: October 2020

Il principe (titolo assegnato nell'edizione originale postuma di Antonio Blado e poi unanimemente adottato, ma il titolo originario era in lingua latina: De Principatibus, 'Sui principati') è un saggio critico di dottrina politica scritto da Niccolò Machiavelli nel 1513, nel quale espone le caratteristiche dei principati e dei metodi per conquistarli e mantenerli. Si tratta senza dubbio della sua opera più nota e celebrata, quella dalle cui massime (spesso superficialmente interpretate) sono nati il sostantivo 'machiavellismo' e l'aggettivo 'machiavellico'. L'opera non è ascrivibile ad alcun genere letterario particolare, in quanto non ha le caratteristiche di un vero e proprio trattato. Da una parte è vero che nel periodo umanista si erano molto diffusi i trattati sul sovrano ideale, anche chiamati speculum principis (ossia specchi del principe), i quali elencavano tutte le virtù che un sovrano avrebbe dovuto avere per poter governare correttamente, prendendo spunto dalla storia e dai classici latini e greci. Dall'altra l'opera del Machiavelli si pone espressamente in forte rottura con quella tradizione, giungendo di fatto a rivoluzionare per sempre la concezione della politica e del buon governo per un principe, ricevendo a tale proposito aspre critiche dei suoi contemporanei.

The Prince Audiobook

The Prince

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: James Acton Release Date: August 2020

"It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles." How can a prince rise to power? What must he do to remain in it? What is expected of a good ruler? Which is better-to be feared or to be loved? Offering an explicit insight into the minds of a ruler, here is a practical handbook and a political treatise exploring the attainment, maintenance and utilization of political power in the Western world. It warns that if a state is not governed properly it shall collapse on the ruler. It describes the art and craft of war. It elaborates on the qualities of a prince and his prudence. It gives lessons in statesmanship and on judging the strength of principalities. The world's most influential-and controversial-treatise on politics Composed in exile and published posthumously, The Prince is Niccolò Machiavelli's legacy and the foundation of modern political theory. Drawing on his firsthand experiences as a diplomat and military commander in the Florentine Republic, Machiavelli disregards the rhetorical flourishes and sentimentality typically found in sixteenth-century mirrors for princes-guides instructing noblemen in the fine art of ruling-and gets straight to practical matters: how to eliminate rivals, when to use force, whether it is better to be loved or feared.

The Prince Audiobook

The Prince

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: Saeid Eslam-Zadeh Release Date: July 2020

Niccolò Machiavelli wrote The Prince in 1513. He was the Italian diplomat and political theorist. This treatise is Machiavelli’s advice to the current ruler of Florence on how to stay in power; the book is dedicated to Lorenzo de’ Medici. The treatise makes a clear break from the Western tradition of political philosophy that preceded him. Before Machiavelli, politics was strictly bonded with ethics and politics being defined as the morality of individuals in social groups or organized communities. He tries to divorce politics from ethics and make a framework for the study of politics. He has often been called the father of modern political philosophy or political science. Most philosophers before him had defined a good leader as humble, moral and honest. But Machiavelli denied that notion. He believed cruelty can be better than kindness. He said: “It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot have both.” This version of the book is translated by Mahmood Mahmood to Persian (Farsi) and narrated by Saeid Eslam Zadeh. The Persian version of The Prince’s audiobook is published by Maktub worldwide.

Author: Niccolo Machiavelli Narrator: Brian Morris Release Date: June 2020

“The Prince” is considered one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially in modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is considered more important than any abstract ideal.
