Abstract :
This book review essay examines Paul van Tongeren’s new book: Het Europese nihilisme. Friedrich Nietzsche over een dreiging die niemand schijnt te deren. The first part deals with Van Tongeren’s extensive introduction of the theme of nihilism. In the second part, Nietzsche’s thoughts on nihilism are central. The third and the fourth part explore and evaluate the two main questions underlying Van Tongeren’s investigation: Why aren’t we harmed by nihilism? What does Nietzsche’s analysis of nihilism mean to us?
