As for his analysis of middle class-specific peculiarities, Tocqueville is the most important contemporary social thinker. The essay’s thesis is that his incomparable work is disruptive not only because it has developed the features of an homo aequalis that is able to drive homo hierarchicus among history’s ruins, but also because has depicted the democratic man as involved in a dimension with no transcendence and no historical and social substance; in this regard, his work is one that speaks about and inside nihilism. In the same way, with respect to a diagnosis that is far-seeing as it is essential, Tocqueville’s theoretical proposal has moved toward an arduous freedom, an awkward and, for some reasons, even enigmatic freedom about which the author provides his own contribution.
