Abstract or description

This book offers a section by section commentary on Nietzsche's early masterpiece. Particular attention is given to Nietzsche's underlying theory of the nature of culture, and its mechanisms for production (across a range of media), change and revolution. This underlying theory is often either ignored or misunderstood in the literature. In addition, the book provides a sustained treatment of Nietzsche's disgnosis of the nature of modernity. The book also places Nietzsche's work in its historical context, and documents something of its immense influence.
