The aim of this article is to examine the problem of political knowledge and its relation to political action in Machiavelli’s thought. In order to achieve this purpose, our methodological choice consists in comparing certain passages of Plato’s Statesman with Chapter XXV of The Prince. The comparison between the two authors allows us to grasp some specific features of Machiavelli’s reflection, clarifying how it distances itself from the tradition of classical political philosophy.
