Nietzsche Contra Democracy by Fredrick Appel

Book Description

Apolitical, amoral, an aesthete whose writings point toward some form of liberation: this is the figure who emerges from most scholarship on Friedrich Nietzsche. The Nietzsche whom Fredrick Appel portrays is a different character, one whose philosophical position is inseparable from a deep commitment to a hierarchical politics. Appel's work shows a thinker who, disdainful of the "petty politics" of his time, attempts to lay the normative foundations for a modern political alternative to democracy. He shows how Nietzsche's writings evoke the prospect of a culturally revitalized Europe in which the herdlike majority and its values are put in their proper place: under the control of a new, self-aware and thoroughly modern aristocratic caste whose sole concern is its own flourishing. In chapters devoted to Nietzsche's little-discussed views on solitude, friendship, sociability, families and breeding, this text brings Nietzsche into conversation with Aristotelian and Stoic strains of thought. The book challenges political theory to articulate and defend the moral consensus undergirding democracy.
