Nietzsche, Hill argues, knew Kant far better than is commonly thought, and can only be thoroughly understood in relation to Kant.- Nietzsches Critiques maintains that beneath the surface of his texts there is a systematic commitment to a form of early Neo-Kantianism in metaphysics and epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics, grounded in his reading of the three Critiques, Kuno Fischers commentary on the first Critique, and Friedrich Langes discussion of Kant in The History of Materialism. The book also documents the decisive influence Nietzsches close reading of the Critique of Judgement had on the writing of the Birth of Tragedy, and offers a remarkably accessible interpretation of Kants system, while clarifying such difficult issues as the interpretation of Kants Transcendental Deduction and his notion of reflective judgement.- Lucid and thorough, Hills work will be of great value to scholars and students with interests in either of these philosophical giants, or in the history of ideas generally.
