    When I first read The Stranger, Meursault’s extreme nihilism naturally stood out to me beyond all other aspects of the story.I read about it and pondered it, and found myself thinking that I agreed with parts of it. That is a thought which scared me, because nihilists as classified by Camus believe in only the certainty of death and find no true purpose in anything. James Tartaglia. Philosophy in a Meaningless Life: A System of Nihilism, Consciousness and Reality. Published: Ap James Tartaglia, Philosophy in a Meaningless Life: A System of Nihilism, Consciousness and Reality, Bloomsbury, , pp., $ (hbk), ISBN Reviewed by Guy Bennett-Hunter, University of Edinburgh.

    Since Friedrich Nietzsche, philosophers have grappled with the question of how to respond to nihilism. Nihilism, often seen as a derogative term for a ‘life-denying’, destructive and perhaps most of all depressive philosophy is what drove existentialists to write about the right response to a meaningless universe devoid of latter diagnosis is what I shall refer to as.   Since it became part of the zeitgeist of nineteenth-century Europe, nihilism has been blamed for virtually every atrocity committed by an unsound individual. This “philosophy of nothing” concludes that our universe, if agentless, is without intrinsic meaning. Thus morals and values are not objective, God-given truths but temporary human inventions.

      Just as to them atheism = hatred of god, rebellion, etc., nihilism = hopeless despair. I am not hopeless and in despair; nihilism is almost an incidental side point and one that's lost on theists anyway. If they ask me if I'm a nihilist they are asking if I'm hopelessly depressed and despairing. I'm not, so the answer is "no". Passive nihilism signifies the end of an era, while active nihilism ushers in something new. Nietzsche considers nihilism not as an end, but as a means ultimately to the revaluation of values. He stresses repeatedly that nihilism is a ‘transitional stage’. Passive nihilism is symptomatic of decreased, declined, receded power of the spirit(2).

Nihilism argues for a middle path: we lack inherent order, but are defined by our choices, which means that we must start making smarter choices by understanding the reality in which we live more than the human social reality which we have used to replace it in our s: Brett Stevens unleashed Nihilism: A Philosophy Based In Nothingness And Eternity, a collection of writings about nihilism, in This anti-enlightenment treatment of philosophy rejects the idea of universalism as an artifact of the ego, and points toward an extreme, human-feelings-denying realism which sees adaptation in the Darwinian sense as its ultimate goal.

Asserting that nihilism is a philosophy is like asserting that 0=1 because "look, there's a zero, right there, so it's got to be at least 1."

The proclamation of nihilism in books and articles is therefore either a pointless mental game or an act of vandalism against established morality. I incline to the former explanation. The Straw Nihilist (also known as the Straw Pessimist) is an extreme version of The Cynic and a specific type of The Philosopher who delivers Despair Speeches and Breaks People by Talking about Life, The Universe, and Everything (or at least how meaningless it is to fight for any of them), often Chewing the Scenery about how the hero/audience lives on an Insignificant Little Blue Planet and.

"Power Nihilism by James T. Stillwell is an educational and enlightening read. The Book explores the concept of ethics from the nihilistic standpoint in similar to that of Nietzsche. Where much contemporary philosophy seeks to stave off the "threat" of nihilism by safeguarding the experience of meaning--characterized as the defining feature of human existence--from the Enlightenment logic of disenchantment, this book attempts to push nihilism to its ultimate conclusion by forging a link between revisionary naturalism in Anglo-American philosophy and anti.
