The Stakes: Machiavelli for the Modern Day

In this special edition of The Stakes, Michael Anton, lecturer in politics and research fellow at Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center, and a Claremont senior fellow, is joined by James Poulos, executive editor of The American Mind. The two discuss the applications of Machiavelli’s political philosophy to the modern day. Topics covered include priestly authority, political corruption, regime decay, and the progression of technology.

The American Mind presents a range of perspectives. Views are writers’ own and do not necessarily represent those of The Claremont Institute.
