Niccolo Machiavelli was born in May 3, 1469 and died in June 22 1527 (aged 58). He studied humanism and made a book call The Prince. Along with many other books but The Prince was his most famous one, Machiavelli was weird, he thought mankind was evil and the book says that the prince has to maintain the rules to which the people know so the new prince has the difficult part in ruling. First he must stabilize his power in order to build a structures. Machiavelli believed that public and private morality had to be understood as two different things in order to rule well. A ruler must be concerned not only with reputation, but also must be positively willing to act good at all times and finally wrote that kings have to change so the city or empire etc. can change as well.

The sharp increase in literacy broke the monopoly of the literate elite on education and learning and bolstered the emerging middle class
