Book Review – The PRNCE by Sulaiman Oladokun
Review a 'Prince' – the man and the power
[T] he wise man should always follow the roads that have been beaten by great men and imitate those who have most excelled, so it can not achieve perfection, you can at least acquire something of its flavor. Niccolo Machiavelli in The Prince, 1513 by Nicolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) Translated by WK Marriott Prince other wise known as the principle is widely regarded as one of the most influential books on politics, especially in the acquisition, perpetuation and use of political power. It is a political treaty a public servant and political theorist Machiavelli's Florence. It was written around 1513 but not published until 1532, five years after the death of Machiavelli's comments continue to resonate with politicians, students and academics. No intention of his writing in a scientific treatise on political theory, Machiavelli wrote The Prince to win the favor of the ruling family of the Medici, which offers advice about how a prince can gain and retain power. Treaty is not truly representative of the work published in his lifetime, but it is certainly the most remembered, and the person responsible of "Machiavellian" in widespread use as a pejorative term. In 1959, it was proposed by historian Garrett Mattinly that the book could be a satire, instead by Machiavelli's real conviction, because Machiavelli was an advocate of classical republicanism. This is plausible because the book was written after exile from Florence returningmedici the family, which has imposed a theocracy Florence.Machiavelli democratic justification for rule by force rather than by law. Consequently, the Prince seems to justify a series of actions is not only perpetuate power. This is a classic study of energy – how to get it, develop it and use it for maximum views effect.The developed by Machiavelli in The Prince may seem extreme. However, his life was spent in Florence at a time of political conflict continues. Consequently, the main value Machiavelli emphasized the need for stability in a prince. The theories expressed in The Prince has been venerated as shrewd and clever methods aspiring prince can use to get the throne, or an existing prince can be used to establish and maintain reign. According to Machiavelli, moral principles must yield to all the circumstances, particularly in cases in squalid, inhumane actions necessary. It is imperative that the prince is willing to do whatever is necessary to maintain power, but, Machiavelli asserts strongly that above all, Prince should not be hated. It gives a concise answer on whether or not a prince to be feared or loved, he says, ".. a wise prince should establish what is your own testimony and not to others, you should try to avoid hatred, as noted. "He also said that" it is better to be both feared and loved, however, if we can not be at the same time, it is better to be feared than loved. "Opening of the Prince's speech sets out methods for effective governance in several types of principalities (eg acquired recently inherited). Machaivali tells the reader, is a member of the Florentine aristocracy, the best way to acquire, preserve and protect the state. Methods described in preaching war and cruelty. Next, Machiavelli explains the qualities the ideal prince should possess, in CEIOPS model Borgia. They are still cited in modern texts on leadership. The characteristics of an effective political leader were as follows:
It seems that Machiavelli does not take into account the relationship between etihics and politics, which worries many of his contemporaries. Machiavelli actually departs from the traditional virtue in altering the connection between ethics and politics to change the conception of virtue for a prince. The prince should strive to be seen as caring, reliable, friendly, honest and religious. But in reality the rights of the prince rarely allow it to be truly compassionate, etc. The final chapters are somewhat concerned about the situation in Italy the time of writing (including "an exhortation to liberate Italy barbarians"). These are the chapters: Chapter I: How many classes There are principalities, and how they are acquired · Chapter II: the principalities ON CHAPTER III • Hereditary: COMMON CHAPTER PRINCIPALITIES ° IV: why the reign of Darius, conquered by Alexander did not rebel against the successors of Alexander to his death ∙ CHAPTER V: The way to govern cities or principalities which were under their own laws before they are attached CHAPTER VI ·: SUBJECT PRINCIPALITIES new ones are acquired by their own weapons and VII • CHAPTER PRINCIPALITIES new capacity is acquired, either by the arms of the other Good or FORTUNE CHAPTER VIII, which must have obtained a principality by evil CHAPTER IX °: IN a civil principality Chapter • X: the way in which the strength of all principalities should be measured CHAPTER XI: XII CONCERNING ecclesiastical principalities CHATER ·: How many types of soldiers are there and MERCENARY FOR CHAPTER XIII: SUBJECT auxiliary soldiers and a mixed'S own Chapter XIV ·: one for a prince OBJECT ART OF WAR CHAPTER XV: THINGS about actions than men, and especially princes, are praised or blamed XVI ·: ON liberality and stinginess Chapter XVII: cruelty and clemency, and whether it is better to be loved or feared Chapter XVIII: on the way princes should keep CHAPTER XIX FE ·: to avoid being despised and hated CHAPTER XX: are strengths, and many other PRINCES often use things, beneficial or harmful? Chapter XXI: How a prince should behave to gain popularity · Chapter XXII: Princes SECRETARIES ON CHAPTER XXII: HOW SHOULD be avoided flattering ° XXIV, the princes of Italy lost their states · Chapter XXV: What can make a fortune in human affairs, and how to resist their · Chapter XVI: an exhortation to liberate Italy from the Barbarians Author Nicolo Machiavelli THE 1469-1527, Italian philosopher and political state, a diplomat of the remuneration of the Republic of Florence, born in Florence, Italy, May 3, 1469 into a prominent family, Niccolo Machiavelli received a classical education quality and typical of the Renaissance humanist tradition Italian. For much of the life of Machiavelli, the Medici family was the ruling class in Italy. However, when the Medici family briefly lost influence in 1494, Machiavelli was appointed a position in the new Florentine Republic. In his new role, Machiavelli had access to the major political and military leaders of Europe and has traveled extensively observe the inner workings of Foreign Affairs firsthand. As secretary of defense of the Florentine Republic, which replaced the militia of citizens for the system of mercenaries. Thanks to diplomatic missions, met power politics, the meeting of leaders like Caesar Borgia. alluded to several times in the Prince. However, in 1512 the Medici family in Florence returned to power, and Machiavelli was arrested on charges of conspiracy against the new regime. He was tortured, and many released and forgiven as soon retired to the interior of Florence, where he wrote many books including: The art of war history of Florence, the discourse on Livy and prince. The Republic of Florence has been restored, but not Machiavelli was appointed to his previous position, because many thought they had too many ties with family Medici. Machiavelli died later that same year, Florence June 22, 1527. His "ideal" prince is a tyrant and amoral calculation could unite Italy. Despite the connotation of the term ruthless achiavellian works, such as voice (1531) and the history of Florence (1532) express republican principles.

Ancient Rome IV – The Fall of the Roman Kingdom
Delonte West FINAL CUT
Who wrote the book of Hebrews?
A great mystery in the book of Hebrews is the author, because the writer is not on their own, or should cover all circumstances or connections to whom he was with absolute certainty. A study of the Epistle to the Hebrews shows that the writer was a man of great literary talent, style more akin to that of classical Greek than any other New Testament writer. This writer is not an immediate disciple of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 2:3). The writer has been well versed in the Old Testament, citing the Septuagint. Additionally, there was a Jew, because often uses first person plural to address his Jewish audience. He was a friend of Timothy and most likely was part of the Pauline Circle (13:23). His use of Scripture Habakkuk 2:4, "The just shall live by his faith" (10:38) agrees with the use of Paul in Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11.
Several opinions were offered on the identity of writers, but none of them behind the same unanimity of the tradition that supports the authorship of the third Gospel of Luke and Acts. The Eastern Church in the early days believed that the Book of Hebrews to be written by Paul, but indirectly, probably. Eusebio said that Clement of Alexandria is also the apostle Paul was the one who wrote the book of Hebrews and Lucas was translated into Greek. Sources often cited Paul's Epistle and confessed that it was generally believed that his, but by giving his own opinion, said: "So if you see this letter as a church of Paul should be congratulated for this because the parents did not give their positions without cause. But who was he really wrote the epistle, Only God knows. "However, the general line of argument and the style and diction of the book are not Pauline.
Many other names were mentioned that the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews may be, in the first place Barnabas, who is credited with Tertullian, and Apollo, a proposal of Martin Luther. However, Barnabas is favored by the facts that he was a Jew, a Levite, besides being a friend of Paul, that education should be very similar to the writing of Paul, and what could the Minister of Jew and Gentile. Moreover, his long experience in teaching would be compatible with the character of the Epistle to the Hebrews, which is teaching. Now, there is Apollos tradition at the beginning of any kind. He was also a Jew, an Alexandria, taught in the Scriptures, and exceptionally successful in his ministry Jews. He was a friend of Paul and remains very active in his own department at the end of Paul's life (Titus 3:13).
In addition, several commentators noted that the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews could summer, Luke, Peter, Judas, Stephen, Silvanus (Silas) Epaphras (Epaphroditus), Philip the Evangelist, Priscilla, Mary, mother Jesus, Clement of Rome, Aristion, and many others. But none of these beliefs or opinions generally enthusiastic reception. The early Christians initially accepted all books of the New Testament as inspired by God, because they have apostolic teaching, if the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews was most likely an apostle or close friend of at least one of the apostles.
Finally, there is nothing in the book of Hebrews clearly points to one man, but it is my opinion that little evidence that is more likely that the author would be good Paul. The following reason is why I am leaning towards Paul is the author Hebrew: (1) The author was a friend of Timothy (Hebrews 13:23), (2) The author was very familiar with the Old Testament Scriptures (3) The author used the same phrase from the Old Testament that was used by Paul in other twice: "The just shall live by faith" (Habakkuk 2:4. cited in Hebrews. 10:38, Rom. 1:17; Gal. 3:11), (4) The author ends with the same brand or Hebrew Paul says, is its particular sign to stop his writing. Look what Paul says in II Thess. Heb 3:17-18 and compare. 13:25 at the end of Paul's Epistles, (5) The author wrote about "many things hard to understand …" (Hebrews 5:11). Peter said the same about Paul's Epistle to the Jews, "wrote Paul … … some things hard to understand "(II Peter 3:15-16).
So, in conclusion of this that is the question that arises is the Hebrew letter written by the apostle Paul? The evidence is still not quite sure, but it does in my view against Paul.

The Chinese cultural context and knowledge of the customs, rites and religions, we must understand fully aware of this art and what it means.
The symbolism of Chinese decor is inexhaustible. There is a story involved in every piece of decoration, understandable only for the student of this art. A package of books, for example, is emblematic of the award.
Ribbons tied in knots in the books, wooden frames (Http://www.ferche.com/), and baskets of flowers, give them a religious emblems. The dragon, a monster of great importance, is a symbol of divine power. Chinese are by nature like flowers and all natural beauty.
The styles of ceramic art in China are designated by the names of dynasties, the last two, Ming and Qing, the designer of today are more important because they are virtually the only styles, examples of which are available to the general public. The first products are found only in museums or private collections invaluable. Important dynasties in which pottery and porcelain have been produced are:
960-1127: Northern Sung: literature and printing.
1127-1280: Southern Sung golden age of landscape painting and ceramics. First porcelain fact mimic the shape of bronze.
1280-1368: Yuan-Mongol tradition follows.
1368-1643: Ming: Arts following models of the past, especially the dynasty T'ang.
1644-1851: Ch'ing: Manchu emperors – Great old porcelain, jade and stone carvings.
The last two dynasties of China are those that have influenced Western art, largely in the eighteenth century the century. Both are known as the Ming (1368-1643) and Qing (1644-1851).
During Ming Dynasty all the arts have been highly recommended. In the manufacture of porcelain, a variety of colors used plain colored enamels, which until now establishment on engraving head frames (http://www.ferche.com), have become less popular as decorations monochromatic pattern have been developed.
This was the period porcelain blue and white floral pattern in shades of blue that several were placed in a cream and covered with a bluish tint varnish very low.
Sometimes, the colors were reversed and white flowers were placed on a blue background. At the end of the Ming period, there are several other techniques of decoration and color patterns, and the beginning of polychrome decoration.
In the Qing emperors K'ang Hsi (1662-1722) and his young son Ch'ien Lung (1736-1795), took considerable interest in manufacturing porcelain and significant traffic was conducted with European countries. The potters of this period have reached its highest point in technical skills.
A wide variety of porcelain were made, including the model discussed and blue and white, the most typical what has been Espino family pot, which shows the flower of the hawthorn in a fund that mimics a model of cracked ice.
The design symbolizes the passing of winter and the arrival spring. The pots were presented as gifts for Chinese New Year's Day, which took place a little later in spring than ours. They were full of candy, preserved ginger tea.
polychrome enamel colors of various shades of the original painted glazed porcelain frames resulted in the most glorious creations. enamel paint applied to the surface of the original piece and made more stable crystal to return to cooking to a temperature below the firing of origin, such as colors enamel could not withstand the high heat needed to cook the body of the piece itself.
The potters at that time, created porcelains family in French terms the "Black family", "Green Family" and "Family hose, which are used to designate China as decorations applied enamel color, background colors are predominant, respectively, black, green and pink.
Such variety striking motifs and colors that have never been matched, and the decorations include a large variety of flowers in their natural colors to define the background colors described above.
Other models are made with scenes domestic life, court scenes, mythological and historical subjects, the dragon and phoenix feathers familiar landscapes more beautiful, sacred mountains, butterflies, insects, and other Buddhist symbols too numerous to enumerate.
