Annotation. Crosby (philosophy, Colo. State U.) distinguishes and relates five areas of nihilism: political, moral, epistemological, cosmic, and existential. He illustrates and examines these as they are expressed in literature and art, in daily life and practical affairs, and in philosophy. Part four, a non-nihilistic reading of the philosophic tradition, has been singled out in particular as a tour de force of philosophical argument.
