Resumen

LEMM, Vanessa. Beyond the Politics of Domination: Aristocratic Culture in Nietzsche. Alpha [online]. 2010, n.31, pp.9-24. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012010000200002.

Nietzsche’s “aristocratic radicalism” has been interpreted to mean either that Nietzsche favors returning to pre-modern political models of aristocratic society which are completely incompatible with modern democracy, or that aristocratism is a radical variant of liberal individualism, an aesthetic and apolitical attitude towards life. In this paper I argue that Nietzsche’s aristocratism fits neither of the above interpretations. Rather, Nietzsche understands aristocratic society in spiritual-cultural terms. In the light of an analysis of nobility, an aristocratic society and culture must be a horizontal ordering of equally respected powers for and against each other that aims at the elevation of the significance of the singular individual’s responsibility.

Palabras clave : Nietzsche; culture; politics; order of rank; responsibility; aristocratism.
