The five texts left us handwritten that La Popelinière devoted to Machiavel, find their place among the controversies brought about by his works – specially Le Prince after the Saint-Barthelemy massacres. They are, in fact, a reply to Gentillet's book, whose argumentation is found to be inadequate. They were written later – in the last ten years of the 16 th century – which induces a more temperate approach and incites the author to go back to the original Italian text to avoid, according to him, the « povre version françoyse ». The processus leading from Contre Machiavel to the Contre-Prince de Machiavel tries to point out the contradictions in the whole book, including the poetic part. It is by using many different points of view that La Popelinière manages to bring out what he judges to be the very foundation of Machiavel’s doctrine – man’s evil nature – and to urge against it a moderne conception of the relationship between the Prince and his subjects, very far from any religious or philosophical stakes : friendship.
The manuscript – also previously unpublished – of the Responce pour l’Histoire gives us the defence plea written in 1585 against his coreligionists’attacks aimed at his Histoire de France (1581). The pressure of urgency, at this time, brings out a long-thought out reflexion on the renewal of historical method.
