Do you think that Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of the Ubermensch is inherently at odds with democracy?

  • Yes, there can be no superior race.

    Friedrich Nietzsche promoted the idea of the Ubermensch and it became a prototype of the superior race of humans that Hitler decided was his job to decide on. There can be no compatibility of superiority with a democratic society or even with a true communist society because it is not egalitarian and breeds oppression.

  • Friedrich Nietzsche's concept

    i personally think that Friedrich Nietzsche's concept o the Ubermensch is inherently at odds with democracy due to their background as well as their previous situations. I personally think that Freidrich Nietzsche's concept was at odds with the democracy based on the society as well as many people's opinions and based off of that it was inherently odd.

  • Little To Do With Government

    I do not believe Friedrich Nietzsche's concept of the Ubermensch is inherently at odds with democracy. The concept works more with religious and philosophical tendencies and has little to do with the real world or government concepts. The work is actually at odds due to the fact that it was never fully explained and the purpose was never clearly stated.

  • It is misunderstood

    Nietzsche's concept of the Ubermensch is not inherently incompatible with democracy, but is so if it is misinterpreted. An Ubermensch is not, technically, a superior man or superior race, but rather the height of the personal capabilities of a person - a philosophical, and not literal high point for a person.

  • Utopia can be democracy.

    No, I do not think that Friedrich Nietzche's concept of the Ubermensch is inherently at odds with democracy, because rejecting other-worldliness in favor of this world does not necessarily mean that the person needs to reject democracy in favor of something else. Rejecting other worldliness, such as heaven, still leaves open for discussion what is best in the here and now.
