MATTEI, Eugenia. Caccia's art: Cyrus's leadership in Niccolò Machiavelli. Estud.filos [online]. 2015, n.52, pp.111-139. ISSN 0121-3628.

The main aim of this article is to analyze the figure of Cyrus in Niccolò Machiavelli's work. For this purpose, we will provide a systematization of mentions of Cyrus in Machiavelli's work -Discorsi and Il Principe-, so as to later tackle the specific uses Machiavelli gives to this figure based on his own queries. From that point, a series of assertions are derived about the relationship between the leader and the people, which are useful to delve into the Machiavellian undertaking.

Keywords : Cyrus; Machiavelli; people; leadership.
