1 What Fortune Can Effect in Human Affairs and How to Withstand Her ~XXV By Raman, Janelle, Salina and Nick

2 Questions: The powerpoint will cover all the questions for our section. Numbers Number 45 is your own opinion.

3 Ratio of Free Will Machiavelli believed that fortune only controls half of one's actions, leaving free will to control the other half. Statue of Machiavelli in Florence

4 Fortune as a River Fortune can be compared to a river that floods because it can destroy everything in it's way, but if you stay prepared (dams) you can control the actions you take (flood).

5 Stay Aware If the Prince relies entirely on fortune he won't be able to correctly respond if the fortune is lost. So if a man is successful by acting one way and the circumstances change, he will fail if he doesn't change his methods.

6 Adventure and Caution It is better to be adventurous than be cautious because fortune is a woman and the man who want to control her, must treat her roughly. "Fortune favors the bold."

7 Agree or Disagree? So do you agree or disagree with Machiavelli's reasoning? Explain. Overall this chapter was about the relationship of actions and fortune in determining the success of a Prince.
