Nietzsche's Critiques: The Kantian Foundations of His Thought (review)

It is among the finest studies of his philosophy published in recent years, and provides the most thorough and incisive demonstration to date of the Kantian context of Nietzsche's philosophical development, without a proper understanding of which key aspects of his thinking are largely unintelligible.
