Machiavelli is presented as the founder of modern political science, with due regard to the fact that he never spoke of @'political science.@' His usage of @'prudence@' and @'art@' in The Prince is examined to see whether, as founder, he was a teacher or a ruler of future generations. His comprehensive attack on classical political science is outlined and developed through two essential points, the cycle and the soul.
