    Though Nietzsche's attitude toward the feminine is undeniably complex in this phase, Picart claims that Nietzsche devoted his efforts to masculinizing woman and regarded this as a feasible political project, analogous to his boast that he had successfully treated himself in overcoming "that crippling and emasculating disease, Romanticism. For in Nietzsche's version of the myth, according to Picart, Demeter's joy at being reunited with her daughter is transformed into a desire to birth Dionysus—a not so innocent erasure of a feminine genealogy In Picart's words: "The driving thesis of this book is that the disease that em powers and disempowers Nietzsche's philosophy is ressentiment. ISBN In Zarathustra misogyny replaces ambiguity.

    The assertion that the question of the feminine, like the issues of politics and aesthetics, is crucial to Nietzsche's philosophical agenda is, however, somewhat contentious. By Caroline Joan S. By not attending to the question of whether or not Nietzsche is a misogynist, however, Picart develops her case against Nietzsche by taking it for granted that the criteria for identifying Nietzsche's misogynous statements are obvious. Picart regards Nietzsche's "gendered mythology" as a key to the symptomatology of his "politics linked with aesthetics" 6. Resentment and the "Feminine" in Nietzsche's Politico-Aesthetics develops the general thesis that the attempt to devalue women and the patriarchal appropriation of the feminine power of birthing is a mark of the resentment that characterizes modernity.

    She opens her reading of Nietzsche by noting that recent assessments of Nietzsche's works have divided into four camps: those who read Nietzsche as a feminist, those who find Nietzsche potentially useful to feminists, those who identity Nietzsche as a misogynist, and those who see no connection between Nietzsche's work and feminist concerns. Given Nietzsche's style and deconstructive project, determining whether or not a statement is misogynous is no simple matter. I am not, however, convinced that her specific charges against Nietzsche [End Page ] will hold; for these charges depend on making the case that Nietzsche is a Romantic; on a Straussian reading of Zarathustra as a noble lie; on seeing Nietzsche as caught in the Hegelian matrix of a master-slave politics; and on taking what Nietzsche says about women at face value. In Picart's words: "The driving thesis of this book is that the disease that em powers and disempowers Nietzsche's philosophy is ressentiment.

Resentment and the feminine in Nietzches politico-aesthetics book

Picart is aware of this. I find Picart's general thesis compelling. More specifically, it finds that Nietzsche is riddled with modern resentments; the evidence for this being his words about women, his portrayal of Zarathustra; and his autobiographical designation of his mother and sister as hell machines By not attending to the question of whether or not Nietzsche is a misogynist, however, Picart develops her case against Nietzsche by taking it for granted that the criteria for identifying Nietzsche's misogynous statements are obvious.

The pre-Zarathustran Nietzsche, still Faustian, hangs his "gendered politics" on the thread of Art; he abandons older dichotomies such as Apollo-Dionysus, Socrates-Euripides, but he introduces a "realignment of mythic figures" that continues to revolve around these polarities: to the free spirit belong Janus, Aphrodite, Achilles, the centaur, while to the fettered spirit belong Pandora and Homer By Caroline Joan S.

I am not, however, convinced that her specific charges against Nietzsche [End Page ] will hold; for these charges depend on making the case that Nietzsche is a Romantic; on a Straussian reading of Zarathustra as a noble lie; on seeing Nietzsche as caught in the Hegelian matrix of a master-slave politics; and on taking what Nietzsche says about women at face value.

In Picart's words: "The driving thesis of this book is that the disease that em powers and disempowers Nietzsche's philosophy is ressentiment. For those who might wonder about Nietzsche's alleged ressentiment he was, after all, the author of this particular theory of modernist criticismPicart makes it clear that there are no sacred cows in her approach; not only is Nietzsche himself "irremediably diseased and decadent," but the fundamental dichotomy of his political philosophy, namely, the opposition between health and disease, is itself "rotten to the core" Picart regards Nietzsche's "gendered mythology" as a key to the symptomatology of his "politics linked with aesthetics" 6.

Interestingly, Picart reads Nietzsche's references to nature as a reference to Demeter, and finds the beginnings of Nietzsche's ambivalence toward the feminine evidenced in the way he rewrites Demeter's desire.

For in Nietzsche's version of the myth, according to Picart, Demeter's joy at being reunited with her daughter is transformed into a desire to birth Dionysus—a not so innocent erasure of a feminine genealogy Reading Nietzsche is never a straightforward affair; statements that appear degrading, for example, the charge that women are superficial, take on ambiguous and positive meanings within the context of Nietzsche's critique of metaphysics.

Picart says that she is not interested in establishing membership in any of these camps. ISBN Access options available:.

The assertion that the question of the feminine, like the issues of politics and aesthetics, is crucial to Nietzsche's philosophical agenda is, however, somewhat contentious. The first claim is relatively unproblematic.

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Hypatia Prior to Zarathustra, Picart tells us, myths of the feminine function as symbols of the vitality and enigma of life.

Nietzsche's remarks about women and femininity have generated a great deal of debate among philosophers, some seeing them as ineradicably misogynist, others interpreting them more favorably as ironic and potentially useful for modern feminism.
