Comparing And Contrasting Mirandolla And Machiavelli

636 words - 3 pages

This compare and contrast essay will focus on the views of leadership between Mirandolla and Machiavelli. Mirandolla believes that leadership should not be false and that it should follow the rule of reason. He believes that leaders should strive for the heavens and beyond. On the other hand, Machiavelli believed that leadership comes to those who are crafty and forceful. He believed that leaders do not need to be merciful, humane, faithful or religious; they only need to pretend to have all these qualities. Despite both of them being philosophers, they have drastically different views on leadership, partially because of their views on religion are different. Mirandolla was very religious, and Machiavelli was a pragmatist, which means that he was not interested in religion.
Mirandolla’s view is shown through his “Oration on the Dignity of Man”. In it he states that “If you see a man dedicated to his stomach, crawling on the ground; you see a plant and not a man.” It means that someone who lives for the sake of living is not someone suited to become leader. It then goes on to state the other qualities that a leader should not have. It says that people that dwell in their dreams and fail to make things happen are not leaders, people that do not make mistakes are not probable leaders because that is not possible and someone that is too pure is not suited to be a leader. His belief is that a leader should be ambitious, free of mediocrity, and tries their best to attain new heights. A leader should be seen as god to others and that they should always believe in god’s reasoning. He believed that a true leader would admire all that the real god has given him and then he will be rewarded with the “light of angels”, which is being like rewarded by becoming leader.
