In the first part of the paper the author presents the key theses of Vickie Sullivan’sreading of Machiavelli. Sullivan argues that, in order to prevent corruption,Machiavelli innovatively reworks elements of Christian teachingfor entirely temporal purposes and offers a specific, modern solution, ‘newRome’, in the form of an irreligious, fearful republic which early and effectivelypunishes the ambitious few seeking to establish tyranny. In the internalrealm of the city, the Florentine reduces class desires of the plebs and thegreats under the common goal of acquisition. A bellicose, tumultuous republicsatisfies the desires of all the social actors, resulting in a lasting political order.In the second part the author critically engages with Sullivan’s interpretation,drawing on Claude Lefort’s interpretation of Machiavelli. Surprisingly,Lefort’s groundbreaking work on Machiavelli has been absent in Straussianreadings of the Florentine. By highlighting the authentically democratic natureof Machiavelli’s project, in contrast with Sullivan’s reading, an entirelydifferent ‘new Rome’ arises on the horizon.
