Abstract

This article presents and discusses the main anti-oligarchic critiques of contemporary political theory. The problem of oligarchy, recently re-emerged as plutocracy, is at the centre of some Marxist and liberal readings. Neo-republican and, again, Marxist approaches are directed against oligarchy as a corrupt regime. Oligarchy as the command of the few is, instead, the etymological meaning rediscovered by the elitist tradition, which the author suggests rethinking in a democratic and progressive perspective.
