discussion on machiavelli the discourse

In 2 paragraphs 12 times new roman single spaced

Book 2 chapters 25 to 33 in Discourses. What I’d like to do in this forum is engage the major themes in each of these short chapters, and in so doing to also recall earlier discussion we’ve had about these matters. These include Pagan vs. Judeo-Christian virtues, the Renaissance, modernity, Machiavelli’s interest in achievable goals rather than pie-in-the-sky ideals, and his concern to face the stubborn limits to human power (the context here is respect for the eternal winds of fortuna). Use at least 4 qoutes from the chapters and cite with the page numbers.
