MANSUY, Daniel. MACHIAVEL ET LA RHETORIQUE DES HUMEURS. Kriterion [online]. 2016, vol.57, n.134, pp.565-586. ISSN 1981-5336.

Starting from an interpretation by Claude Lefort, the present article studies the nature of social humors in the thought of Machiavelli. In “The Prince” and in “The Discourses”, the Florentine thinker proposes a theory of social division that is a novelty in the history of Political Philosophy. I try to determine Machiavelli’s position vis-à-vis this conflict, and whether it can be overcome.

Keywords : Machiavelli; Claude Lefort; Political Philosophy; General Theory of the State.
