Nietzsche and Nihilism – A Warning to the West



“What I relate is the history of the next two centuries. I describe what is coming, what can no longer come differently: the advent of nihilism.” 

– Nietzsche, The Will to Power

Nihilism is the conviction that there is no meaning to life, that the world is inhospitable to our highest hopes and values, and that there are no gods or higher purposes to justify our suffering. To be a nihilist is to flirt with despair and the sentiment that life is not worth living, and thus, the nihilist position is antithetical to life. 

In this presentation by the Academy of Ideas, a disturbing harbinger is revealed, which might be the end result of our post-modern society’s increasingly popular cult of nihilism.
