(p.553) Afterword
The Machiavellian Moment

J.G.A. Pocock

Richard Whatmore

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter contains the author's reflections on the publication of this volume as well as the ideas expressed therein. It first begins with a survey of Machiavellian thought as discussed among the author's contemporaries, before returning to the question of how republican thought had inexplicably taken root in English soil, to say nothing of the scope of Machiavellian thought in the larger scope of European history. The chapter also introduces further questions raised by the topics discussed in this volume, which have not been addressed, emphasizing that The Machiavellian Moment but illuminates certain things which were going on in the history it narrates, and that it touches on many things which could be seen and expressed differently.

Keywords:   The Machiavellian Moment, Niccolo Machiavelli, European history, European politics, Machiavellian thought, modernity
