Machiavelli Tutoring, 30 mins

15


15 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will help you with anything Machiavelli related, from looking up specific ideas in his major works, or explaining his ideas in context, to creating a study guide for you to become familiar with his major or minor works. I can recommend worthwhile books and translations, recommend contemporary essays about his works or his life, and I will help you understand any chapter from The Prince, The Discourses, The Art of War, etc.

Training & Qualifications


I have spent way too much time reading Machiavelli! I once spent an entire summer just reading the Discourses on Livy and the relevant historical texts like Livy's History, the Lacedaemonian Constitution, Tyrannicus, etc. Just the personality of Machiavelli fascinates me; statesman, comic poet and playwright, and loyal patriot of the Florentine people, and author of works of political philosophy whose importance it is difficult to overstate. What a guy!

Availability & Preferences


I'm free Fridays through Sundays, when I don't have class.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!
