L’oligarchia e i suoi critici nel XXI secolo
Keywords:oligarchy, democracy, corruption, plutocracy, elites
This article presents and discusses the main anti-oligarchic critiques of contemporary political theory. Oligarchy as plutocracy is the focus of liberal and some Marxist theories. Against oligarchy as a corrupt regime, neo-republican and, again, Marxist approaches are directed. Oligarchy as the command of the few is, instead, the etymological meaning rediscovered by the elitist tradition, that the author suggests rethinking in a democratic and progressive perspective.
