    Tenets in The Prince ?

    Does anyone know exactly what a tenet is, or an example of one that can be found in Niccolo Machiavelli's, The Prince ?

    Hello, potter11, welcome to the forum.
    Dictionary.com calls a 'tenet' . . .
    any opinion, principle, doctrine, dogma, etc., esp. one held as true by members of a profession, group, or movement.
    As for where a reader can find tenets in The Prince, I would have more trouble finding places where a reader could not find tenets. Macchiavelli, himself, both praises and insults various political beliefs, philosophies, and methods of ruling; more importantly, as known in the so-called 'Machiavellian personality,' he directs many opinions of ethics.
    Good luck!
