Title of Research:

Marx and Nietzsche: an attempt for a complementary reading.

Brief overview of research topic:

The project investigates to what extend a complementary reading of the thought of Marx and Nietzsche is possible from the point of view of the project of human emancipation, using Deleuze’s reading of Nietzsche as a bridge. It focuses on three sets of parallel concepts in the work of Marx and Nietzsche respectively: a) “revolutionary consciousness”  – “transvaluation of values”, b) “socialist new man” – “overman”, c) “becoming alienated” – “becoming reactive”, and will perhaps include a fourth one “fetishism of commodities” – “nihilism”.  The main research question is: “does the formal affinity of these pairs of concepts constitute a ‘unity in their difference’, something more than that or is it simply coincidental?”
