Name Professor Course Date Introduction The prince is an analysis of the methods of acquiring and maintaining political power. Niccolo Machiavelli wrote this book in 1513 a period after; he was forced to go exile from Florence republic (Niccolo 482-491). It was then published in 1532. Machiavelli was famous in poetry and playwriting. It was formally dedicated to Lorenzo de’ Medici and was an advice to the then ruler of Florence on how to stay in power. Apparently it is believed to be the first work of philosophy especially political philosophy. On the other hand Friedrich Nietzsche wrote “Morality as Anti-nature” in the 19th century. He expressed his view on the morality that is taught by religions (Nietzsche 149). According to this philosophy molarity seems to lie within its own nature and has connections with religion. He further describes how every human has a passion that is innate hence on his advice to prince concerning other people wives and the bad methods of acquiring wealth are an element of ethics that is controversial to morality as anti-nature. Conclusion In summary the two philosophers seem to have similarities on the view of human and his nature to compete and protect power. Besides they liken human to animal. This similar view does not come without a difference where Machiavelli is advising the prince on moral and the importance to avoid conflict with the church while Nietzsche is fully against moral and religion into an extent of stating that God does not exist.
