Looking at Nietzsche's active Nihilism through a creative lens. The topic is an overview of Nihilism whilst exploring different kinds of Nihilism. Asking if Buddhist Philosophy is a type of Nihilism? Asking if a Nihilist can believe in anything, be happy living as a Nihilist, etc? And how Phenomenology, Hermeneutics and Existentialism can mutually correct/corroborate each other, as a way of redefining a critical philosophy.
