Is the Schumpeterian entrepreneur superhuman?

Cahiers d’économie politique / Papers in Political Economy, 2013, issue 65, 183-202

Abstract: Most of Schumpeter’s commentators admit Nietzsche’s influence on the Schumpeterian conception of the entrepreneur. Nevertheless, from our point of view, this influence is often treated in the historical context and in a very limited definition of the entrepreneur. In this article, we argue that the latter could be interpreted from a philosophical standpoint. Although Schumpeter has not aimed to go that far, we suggest an interpretation based on Nietzschean will to power
