Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS | 133 in his metaphysical story; in the later works, in his biological story. In both cases, cultural criticism has a firm, independent foundation. Huddleston does not explore either of these Nietzschean foundations in much detail, which is his prerogative. While he does not rule out grounding criticism in objective foundations, he does not oer a ff ny, and his concluding remarks emphasize Nietzsche’s role in helpfully oer ff ing a variety of internal criticism (169–71). er Th e, again, it is hardly plain sailing. Intuitively, we might want to say that people can change their minds mistakenly, under subtle coercion, or in ways that damage them. The difficulty lies, notoriously, in producing an account of social criticism that avoids these pitfalls. My point is not that these issues are unresolvable, but only that I wish there had been, or indeed will be, more space allotted to them than the closing few pages of the book.
