This chapter argues against a new and perhaps more benign way of classifying Nietzsche as a political conservative. It also adds to the argument that even though Nietzsche is seen as more leftist than he appears, he is not an egalitarian. It does so by making an extended and detailed case against Julian Young’s claim that the flourishing of the community is Nietzsche’s highest value. The final section suggests that Nietzsche’s view might nevertheless be able to accommodate richer notions of community value than is commonly supposed—one that, in important respects, is similar to the value that he attributes to the exceptional individual.

Keywords:   Nietzsche, Julian Young, political conservative, egalitarian, community value, exceptional individuality
