Summary
"The Overman in the Marketplace explores the emergence and significance of "a Nietzschean heroic model" in twentieth-century popular culture, some notable examples of which are icons of pop culture such as James Bond, Tarzan, Hannibal Lector, or Ayn Rand's heroes. Taking on the nineteenth-century Romantic rebellion against Realism, the Nietzschean hero becomes a crusader against the perceived leveling-down of mass society. This book aims at integrating the analysis of Nietzschean heroism into a comprehensive social and ideological critique."--BOOK JACKET
