Sažetak
This chapter has two parts: the first part should provide a context for the second part. In the first part I present some general problems with the interpretation of Machiavelli's text of "The Prince" and some aspects of Machiavelli's relationship to ancient philospohers. In the second part I discuss the partiuclar relationship between Machiavelli's "Prince" and Plato's "Republic". My conclusion is that, despite some obvious parallels between Plato's "Politeia" and Machivaelli's "Prince", it is not completely true to say that Machiavelli begins where Platonic characters stop: Machiavelli actually starts with a completely different premise than Plato, namely, that people are by nature wicked. This is contrary to ancient Greek optimism, according to which people, even if they are not virtuous by nature, have some rudimentary good traces in their nature, tend towards goodness and improvement. Machivelli's "Prince" is how Socrates "politeia" would look like, if Socrates did not think that the Idea of the Good were supreme.
