By Nicolas Machiavel; H C Mansfield (ed.)

Traduit par Toussaint Guiraudet

L'Art de los angeles guerre, publié en 1521, occupe une position singulière dans l'oeuvre de Machiavel. Présenté sous l. a. forme d'un discussion, l'ouvrage surprend par son esprit peu machiavélique. Les considérations tactiques y côtoient les propos consacrés aux nécessités matérielles de l. a. guerre (recrutement, armement...), orchestrant avec subtilité une réflexion sur le pouvoir. Quelles limites los angeles politique impose-t-elle à l'art de l. a. guerre ? remark définir l'autorité ? Ce sont là quelques-unes des questions soulevées par Machiavel qui puise ici ses modèles chez les Anciens. En grand stratège, il omet parfois de répondre. Mais l. a. guerre est une affaire si sérieuse qu'il faut peut-être savoir los angeles manier avec ironie.
