Machiavelli has the reputation of being an immoral thinker. His most famous work, The Prince, is accused of being a manual of trickery and cynicism in politics. On the contrary, it invites us to look political and human reality in the face. Against illusions, moralizing speeches, it is a question of seeking the truth and adopting a scientific approach to seriously think about action. This introduction offers us the keys to understanding The Prince, the founding book of modern political thought, and the relevance of its teachings for our contemporary societies.
