Abstract

B o o K R e V i e W s | 123 certain theology of which Nietzsche would have been highly suspicious. Indeed, in its fascination with the "spectacular" and the "great," understood as the "big," the notion of "event" seems related to the "grand" power politics of which Nietzsche was so critical, and which he ultimately associated with slave morality. So if Lemm and Conway are right to point out that Nietzsche rejected the "petty politics" of his day, that of the nationalist state and its jockeying for position within the European balance of power, Lemm's claim that events become great only if they are received as such by the democratic people seems a little harder to accept: Nietzsche's claim that a culture is judged not solely by its great men but also by how they are received is made in the first instance about a particular people, namely the Greeks, and we know that for Nietzsche the ancients were in fact the aristocrats par excellence. Both Lemm and Bosteels refer to Badiou's idea of "anti-" or "archi-" philosophy as a way of capturing Nietzsche's "great politics," understood as either going beyond or even breaking with
