In this paper, I will study two kinds of philosophical experience: immanent experience (political theory) and transcendent experience (mysticism), the results of which affect practical life. The solitude of the prince of Machiavelli, is an undesired solitude that seeks the acknowledgement of the people, that is immanent and assumed. In contrast to this kind of solitude, there is another experience, the experience of the mystic that nourishes the apostle; the aim is different from that of the prince, but its results will provide the basis for a new ordering of the world.
