Nietzsche and Marinetti. On the Techno-Aesthetics

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Nietzsche; Marinetti; Übermensch; Machine; Ascetism.

In this contribution I will discuss the relationship between Friedrich Nietzsche and Filippo Tommaso Marinetti around the topic of the Übermensch. My theses are the following: a) the Nietzschean vision contains an aspect that for Marinetti sounds like a return to the past and that cannot be accepted in his futurist vision; b) this discrepancy testifies to a very important transformation in the meaning of ascetic-disciplinary practices that has its center of gravity in the relationship that Futurism establishes with machines. On this specific point I will try to bring to light a conceptual turn in the varied field of anthropotechnical language between Nineteenth and Twentieth Century.
