Maverick Philosopher on Nietzsche

I really like the attempt at understanding Nietzsche.

I'm wondering however if Maverick is aware that Nietzsche's critique of truth gives up on the idea that it is a thesis about the epistemological sense of knowing a proposition, or a fully-blown nature of truth thesis like correspondence theory. In this way, the truth doctrine of Nietzsche is more about the determinative social forces that determine the strength of an idea as a historical product, as he describes towards the end.
