      “This is an outstanding book, exceptional in its density of data, sweep of coverage, interpretative skill, and multi-leveled significance The style is elegant and subtle, the interpretative stance insightful and phenomenologically disciplined, and the coverage of Nietzsche’s twentieth century American interpreters who wrestled with his thought, life, and reception in the United. Nihilism (/ ˈ n aɪ (h) ɪ l ɪ z əm, ˈ n iː-/; from Latin: nihil, lit. 'nothing') is a philosophy, or family of views within philosophy, expressing some form of negation towards life or towards fundamental concepts such as knowledge, existence, and the meaning of life. Different nihilist positions hold variously that human values are baseless, that life is meaningless, that knowledge is.

      Beyond Good and Evil is Nietzsche's perspectivism in practice: we can read every aphorism as one different perspective from which to look at Nietzsche's philosophy. There is some sort of line we can trace, moving from perspective to perspective, but essentially we end up with Nietzsche's philosophy in 9 big pieces and smaller fragments.   It is widely used in the contemporary novel as a metaphor for some uniquely American political and individual thought - for baseball in US lit, and sport more widely conceived, see Coover's.

      Kindred spirits: Nietzsche and Locke as progenitors of axiological liberation / A. Todd Franklin --Nietzsche, ressentiment, lynching / John Pittman --Double consciousness and second sight / Kathleen Marie Higgins --Of tragedy and the blues in an age of decadence: thoughts on Nietzsche and African America / Lewis R. Gordon --Ecce negro: how to. Literature loves to explore the philosophical thought of existential nihilism. From Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' to Chuck Palahniuk's 'Fight Club', the revelation that life is devoid of any purpose.
