Aristokratia presents a fine and sleekly packaged collection of original articles on philosophy. The content of the book is high and structured in an academic manner, with references, citations and clearly explained arguments.
It is not however, the normal ‘run of the mill’ philosophy book as it has a unique feel to it, and it certainly doesn’t come across as dry – rather it comes across as something new and vibrant.
For the reader who enjoys Nietzsche, Aristokratia is an absolute must as a number of the articles relate directly to his philosophy, and to how it continues to impact on the modern world. For those pursuing a spiritual angle, there is no shortage of articles on perennial philosophy either.
For those who really want some intellectual challenges, there are also some essays on more obscure philosophers whose works have only began to circulate in English, such as the Colombian Nicolás Gómez Dávila and the Romanian Émile Cioran. All round, Aristokratia offers something for the amateur and the expert philosopher alike.
