EXNIHILO: The Reading List

Right is not the offspring of doctrine, but of power. All laws, commandments, or doctrines as to not doing to another what you do not wish done to you, have no inherent authority whatever, but receive it only from the club, the gallows, and the sword. A man truly free is under no obligation to obey any injunction, human or divine. Obedience is the sign of the degenerate. Disobedience is the stamp of the hero. Men should not be bound by moral rules invented by their foes.
The whole world is a slippery battlefield. Ideal justice demands that the vanquished should be exploited, emasculated, and scorned. The free and brave may seize the world.

It will undoubtedly make the vast majority of its readers uncomfortable including myself , but its arguments are sound. Aug 07, Bry Willis rated it it was amazing Shelves: favourites , non-fiction , philosophy. A succinct definition and defence of neo-nihilism. The Audible audio version is narrated by the author, whose rendition is fitting for the subject at hand. I started and ended it within the span of a flight from Chicago to Detroit, so it's a quick read, unmired by a lot of philosophical jargon. Great brief yet broad description Not only a great and brief summary, very elaborate and allows one to be able to relate with other topics and terminology as quickly as the book moves along, proving it's great clarification and definitive topics.
Dec 05, Kristjan Kangro rated it it was amazing. Very good book if you want to know true human nature. Aug 26, Nora rated it did not like it. A pathetic little book written by the Ben Shapiro of nihilism. Sep 07, C. Varn rated it really liked it. A short book that is insightful but needed to be fleshed out. The three premises built on subsets of prior philosophy seem to entail a leap that where the will to power was posited as a good derived from descriptions of human relations which would violate the authors dependence on Hume's is-ought distinction.

Only in the last few paragraphs does the author make it clear that it is not truth as such only the moral imperatives arrived from truths and it is not values as such, just any attempt to make values objective and thus universal that is a problem.
He does show that this is not moral relativism in that moral relativism has a conclusion respect different moral systems that is in contradiction to it with its premise, there is no universal morality and this his neo-nihilism is different. That said it does not seem that different from Heideggerian existentialism.
Furthermore, many assertions in this book, such a Nietzsche's dependence on and critique of Kant, could be very long book topics in and of themselves. This essay is far from perfect but it is interesting. Jan 04, Eric rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy.

This short book contains a potent, concentrated form of what other philosophers Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Kant, Deleuze, et al contain only in diffuse and diluted form. It quickly explains the single great error of Western thought - representation as truth - and traces the results of recognizing this error for morality, law, and life itself.
It is concise and to the point, and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a simple, effectively formulated version of these ideas. I would also recomm This short book contains a potent, concentrated form of what other philosophers Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Kant, Deleuze, et al contain only in diffuse and diluted form.
