MATTEI, Eugenia. L' esecutore privilegiato di Dio: The figure of Moses in the work of Niccolò Machiavelli. Anal. filos. [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.1, pp.103-131. ISSN 1851-9636.

The aim of this article is to analyze the references and uses that Niccolò Machiavelli makes on the figure of Moses in Il principe and in the Discorsi. Machiavelli develops a particular approach, which must be followed closely: based on his analysis, we may find tools to examine how leaderships operate in his work, and how leaders interact with the people through a passionate circle that is generated between them. For these purposes, this article will proceed in the following way: in first place, we will sequentially restore the mentions on Moses in Machiavelli's work. Once this information is provided, we will focus on the treatment of the relevant concepts -the absence of religion in Moses, the cruelty, the tension between virtue and fortune, and the relationship between leader and people- in order to address the theoretical innovation that these examples portray.

Palabras clave : Moses; Leadership; People; Machiavelli.
