He just put all these ideas out there and said ‘go figure it out’—and on it’s gone for 500 years.” It is Machiavelli’s challenge to our modern world, Sullivan and Evrigenis argue, that we ferret out new possibilities by understanding that what is right in one circumstance may be disastrous in another. “When he talks about the state of war, he is really talking about a state of mind,” Evrigenis says. “He stresses flexibility—to be able to think quickly and react, even in peace.” And that leads to his greatest legacy, which could be summed up as “assume nothing.” “People often say he was critiquing Christianity or Plato or Aristotle, but his thinking is far broader than that,” Evrigenis says. “He is interested in challenging any dominant way of thinking that may not preserve a secure society.”
