Abstract

Nietzsche’s Genealogy of Morals is extremely relevant for an epistemology of the good regarding the institutional incisions made on part of the Raval population. First, all kinds of abuses should have been carried out, either for the good of the neighbourhood or the rest of the city, such as house demolitions, destroying urban models, persecuting and evicting people. If it was the case, one may affirm at this point that the institutional convergences hold themselves in an engaged epistemology. Secondly, both the pathos of distance defined by Nietzsche, and the assumption by some new urban ideologies of the “priestly caste” primitive role, would allow updating the criticism of public spirit, understood as the most recent and effective expression of the cultures of control. And last but not least, this engaged epistemology would allow claiming the marxian notion of class struggle in order to perform a chronic and generalized disrespect over an important part of the most unredeemed population in one of the Europe’s most convulsive neighborhoods.
