Description

In A Nietzschean Defense of Democracy, Hatab offers a new, postmodern account of democracy, freed from the traditional assumptions embodied in the Enlightenment project. Hatab advances a two-fold argument: first, that Nietzsche was wrong to repudiate democracy since democratic politics can be more amenable to his way of thinking than he imagined; second, Nietzsche was right to critique fundamental flaws in traditional democratic theory, especially the modernist emphasis on human equality, rational subjectivity, and natural rights.
