The Prince is a classic work of political philosophy by famous political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. A phrase often associated with this work is “the ends justify the means.” In other words, Machiavelli believed that acts of cruelty or lawbreaking were justifiable if the purpose of such acts was to advance one’s own power and chances of survival. The adjective “Machiavellian” refers to behaving in a way that aligns with Machiavelli’s philosophy. To this day, Machiavelli’s philosophy is controversial.
