The article introduces the concept of hyperracism understood as a form of racial discrimination within the so called “elect race”, based on additional restrictive internal criteria. One of the first examples of hyperracism is the one based on the “Blut und Boden” paradigm: it identifies a small circle of hierarchically superior individuals, linked to a territory of origin. The Boden allows the race to develop, is configured as a “mystical body”, and plays the role of a restrictive principle within the same racist ideology. The “principle of Anteo”, that is the dependence of the race from the contact with the national soil, is only a first example of hy- perracism, from which move other and more dangerous forms of hyperracism, which identify in the soul or in the spirit, as respectively in Alfred Rosenberg and Julius Evola, restrictive criteria much more discretionary than the Boden and therefore more arbitrary.
