`This is a very timely book. Much of the current interest in Nietzsche, and some of the best recent scholarship, concerns questions of his naturalism, his stance toward Darwin, his historical and genealogical method, his critique of morality, and his moral psychology. Small's erudite study shows us how these aspects of Nietzsche's thought originated, how they developed, and how they themselves came under his critical scrutiny. . . .' Paul S. Loeb, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews `....under his critical scrutiny. . . . I have focused on Small's account of the philosophical partnership between Nietzsche and Ree, and in particular on his discussion of the role of Darwin in this partnership. But readers will also learn from Small's penetrating analysis of their shared ideas on freedom, character, and punishment; from his judicious and psychologically insightful review of their personal friendship (including the famous "Lou affair"); and from his aesthetically discerning treatment of the influence of Ree's aphoristic style on what is often regarded as Nietzsche's original stylistic invention.. . . Highly recommended. This book will be of interest to general readers, undergraduates, graduates, and scholars in the field.' Paul S. Loeb, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
