Nihilist literature.
    #4098937 - 04/26/05 03:00 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Can anyone here point me in the direction of some good nihilist literature/writer?

Fictional nihilistic writers (such as the author of 'Fight Club') or modern-day (late 20th century-21st century) nihilistic 'theory' writers are my preference, but early writers are also welcome (such as Bakunin).

Thanks.

You can't really put philosophers in a category, and to my knowledge there are no purely Nihilistic philosophers, but some that have Nihilistic undertones or beliefs are Nietzsche, Gorgias, Immanuel Kant to a lesser extent, and Max Stirner. There are many more, but I can't think of them. :wink:

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

^^Also there are no purely nihilstic philosophers because nihilism is anti-philosophy  :smirk:

Chuck Pahlaniuk (author of fight club) is considered more of an existentialist author than nihilist overtones....btw.
