Educating the Prince: Essays in Honor of Harvey Mansfield
Mark Blitz, William Kristol
Rowman & Littlefield, Jan 1, 2000 - Philosophy - 326 pages
For forty years, Harvey Mansfield has been worth reading. Whether plumbing the depths of MachiavelliAIs Discourses or explaining what was at stake in Bill ClintonAIs impeachment, Mansfield's work in political philosophy and political science has set the standard. In Educating the Prince, twenty-one of his students, themselves distinguished scholars, try to live up to that standard. Their essays offer penetrating analyses of Machiavellianism, liberalism, and America., all of them informed by MansfieldAIs own work. The volume also includes a bibliography of MansfieldAIs writings.
