Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS | 125 broader project and the important influences on Nietzsche’s thinking, and he employs this knowledge to provide an interpretation that stays close to the original text and yet does not devolve, as some introductions are wont to do, into a mere paraphrasing of the ideas found therein. For these reasons, I highly recommend Ure’s introduction to GS to students and scholars alike. Andrew Huddleston, Nietzsche on the Decadence and Flourishing of Culture. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2019. xi + 191 pp. isbn: 978-0-198-82367-4. Hardcover, £45. Reviewed by Tom Stern | University College London Andrew Huddleston’s book sets out a vision of Nietzsche as a philosopher of culture. His approach sheds light on some familiar problems and opens up a new way of thinking about cultural criticism. Nietzsche’s concern, he argues, lies with both the instrumental and final value of both individuals and whole cultures.
