Niccolò Machiavelli Niccolò Machiavelli was born in Florence (Italy) on May 3, 1469, within a Florentine noble family. His parents, both of rich families becoming less economically, instilled in him as a child the passion for the arts, literature and, especially, politics (available, n.d.). Throughout his life, he held different positions and political functions, the most prominent being those ordered by the Borgias, a time he lived fully and was known as The Renaissance. Without a doubt, it was his masterpiece, "the Prince", the legacy that marked him forever in world history (Mansfield, N / a). This curious character attracted me because always, in everything related to political issues I have heard him name it again and again. Machiavelli’s philosophical view. The political vision of Machiavelli is, without a doubt, one of the most realistic political visions that have been conceived. Machiavelli was known by the phrase "The end justifies the means", conceived the importance of political action adapting to the reality of the times and in turn the possibility, through this political realism, to dominate the circumstances, so that " the wise will rule over the stars” (Machiavelli, 1532). In pursuit of this realistic vision, Machiavelli created various militias which helped through violence to his political ambitions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
