#15. Which ancient author is known as the Indian Machiavelli?
Kautilya, also known as Chanakya, was a political thinker and economist in ancient India, who lived around the 4th century BCE. Machiavelli, on the other hand, was an Italian political philosopher and statesman who lived during the Renaissance, around the 15th and 16th centuries CE. The reason Kautilya is known as the “Indian Machiavelli” is not because he was born before Machiavelli, but because both of them were political thinkers and their works are considered classics in their respective cultures. Both of them wrote about statecraft, power, and politics in a way that is considered pragmatic and realistic, and their works are still widely read and studied today.
