Action Philosophers #7: Machiavelli & Thomas Jefferson!
The Action Philosophers posse gets all political on us! First: Niccolo Machiavelli scanadlized the Renaissance with his masterwork of backroom dealing, The Prince, but was he just telling it like it is? And the European Enlightment helped Thomas Jefferson create the equivalent of an American Scripture with the Declaration of Independence ... but how does that square with him diddling his slaves? Writer Fred Van Lente and artist Ryan Dunlavey read and explain and make fun of philosophy so you don't have to!
