    1. In reading Nietzsche, one would never have thought to find Adorno pitted on the side of Nietzsche, but this is what one sees in the very first section of "Anti-Nietzsche" was a condemnation of the aesthetic as an attempt to defend other privileged but arbitrary notions of value. Anti-Nietscheanism is predicated first on seeing the manifestation of the aesthetic as a means of returning to "value" and defining power as the sovereign value over power. Bull's thesis then proceeds wildly from there, [...]



    2. "In their response to nihilism both Nietzsche and Heidegger rely on what is perhaps the central tenet of fascism in all its forms: the idea that particular human ecologies are the ultimate source of meaning."One can learn from a conservative thinker, even if they draw disgusting political conclusions from their philosophy. But it's another thing to forget that they're conservative, as many did in the wake of brilliant French interpretations of Nietzsche (and even Heidegger). It has been common t [...]


    3. Part of the problem with going against Nietzsche is that he says too much; and is hard to pin down. His books are all over the place, and he leaves you with aphorisms that are as philosophical as they are suggestively poetic.In this vein, Bull does a pretty good job, even if it is a bit disorganized, at teasing out bits of Nietzsche. Bull's approach is unique. He goes against Nietzsche to see if there's something practical in Nietzsche. And I think that this untraditional approach works well, ev [...]


    4. sort of strange- has some interesting stuff but as others have said it kind of goes all over the place. he introduces the idea of reading like a loser - which is pretty interesting- and then barely references it again. he talks for a whole chapter about Heidegger but it's very confusing (partially cause Heidegger is ridiculous) and not clearly tied to Nietzsche. it also has a really horrid implication which I feel is probably partially the end point of his ideas- there's a sort of idea that conc [...]


    5. I must admit to having been quite disappointed by this book, but perhaps I was expecting the wrong things from it; alas, it seems to be aimed so much at specialists that it doesn't bother to articulate its perspectives very clearly. The author has managed to have much of New Left Review 86 (Mar/Apr 2014) devoted to discussing it, and that discussion seems to confirm my feeling that Bull simply wanted to pull off a virtuoso performance that would be admired by his mates. I believe it's truly impo [...]


    6. This starts out promisingly well; then it goes all over the place trying to find something sure for footing and foundation sake.Well intentioned, and for any serious Nietzsche reader it is worth the investment to read. But the authors thesis is loose and weak, and there are all these diversions and dead-end like tangents.


    7. We are promised that "Anti-Nietzsche is a subtle and subversive engagement with Nietzsche and his twentieth-century interpreters—Heidegger, Vattimo, Nancy, and Agamben." Actually, it is an engagement primarily with those elements of Nietzsche most likely to appeal to a fascist and with things written by others - Heidegger in Germany in 1943 for example - which reflect their opinions and not his. I am not in the mood to read Nietzsche that way and this book does not give a fair representation o [...]
