What is it that made Rome great? Around minute 28, starting with "T" (not the Senate, not the popular assembly, but?..). I can't understand what your guest pronounced at that key point.
Starts with a T
"Tumults": the interclass disputes that Machiavelli saw as an important engine of Rome's success.
Tumults! Thank you :)
Wonderful - thank you!
For context: The first book on chess, by Damiano, was released in Rome in 1512.
Interviewing Skinner on Hobbes
Wonderful episode, I hope you are able to interview him again for the podcast on Thomas Hobbes (which we are years away from reaching at this point).
I'm aware you already have an interview recorded from a while back on Suarez and Hobbes with Thomas Pink.
