(p.133) { 6 } Bloom and Nietzsche
Nietzsche on Ethics and Politics

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the nature of Alan Bloom’s opposition to Nietzsche, which is evident in The Closing of the American Mind (1987). It argues that Bloom’s view of it is different from what his book originally suggests, and that he offers one view for the people but a quite different one for the philosopher. In the interest of suggesting that we reject both of these views of Nietzsche, the chapter then offers Nietzsche’s quite different view of the Bloom-Nietzsche opposition.

Keywords:   Allan Bloom, philosophy, Nietzsche
