Is political philosophy alive today in the west? Did it survive the barrage of sociology, economics and feel-good individualism? Can the good regime and the good life still be the subject of discussion in today's democratic countries, or are we destined to wallow in "the joyless quest for joy"?

Sure, though we'd have to be accept that that kind of inquiry is unlikely to become especially popular. Plato and Aristotle were, after all, among the only people inquiring in that way, and it was only surface teachings of theirs that became popular subsequent to them.

It was never seriously relevant. Just a parlor game for intellectuals where winners would get nice-sounding tenets promoted as window dressing to rationalize the government

mass democracy is what killed it

Der Wille zur Macht, or yet another case of Germans misreading French authors (this time Hippolyte Taine and De Maistre as mediated by Comte and Taine), and taking their "conclusion" to the extreme while completely disregarding the authors' original intention. Seriously Germans should be banned from every library on the face of the earth forever.

Birth of Tragedy is cool though.
