In this article Machiavelli's attitude towards Greek antiquity and philosophy is presented and interpreted, in particular his preference to Sparta and his critical attitude towards Athens and also the way of perception on behalf of him for the general political influence of classical literature and philosophy. Finally, the special way he comprehends Renaissance, as this is expressed in Machiavelli’s philosophy of history, is presented.
