Cohen explains Nietzsche's turnabout from his earlier philosophy, analyzes the argumentative tactics by which Nietzsche deploys science to undercut traditional metaphysics, describes the character of the free spirits, and examines the division of labor scheme that Nietzsche prescribes for cultural progress.
Cohen also shows how "Human, All-Too-Human," despite its "aphoristic" style, has a unified literary structure and integrity, which are central to the communication of the book's philosophical message.
"Science, Culture, and Free Spirits" helps us read both Nietzsche's individual works and his overall philosophy as coherent wholes.
