Publisher's Summary

This text concisely puts forward the case for a form of nihilism - fusing thoughts from Hume, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche, amongst others. It forcefully argues that morality as we know it is a power structure disguised as knowledge; that law is based upon this false idol; and that thus power is, in fact, the basis of all life.

This text inspired the recreation of the Marvel philosopher superhero Karnak.

Written by the Philosopher Peter Sjöstedt-H.

Peter Sjöstedt-H is an Anglo-Scandinavian philosopher with specialization in the thought of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Bergson, and Whitehead, and within the Philosophy of Mind. Following his studies in philosophy at Warwick University, Peter became a philosophy lecturer in London for six years. He is currently engaged in his PhD at Exeter University where he also teaches philosophy modules and writing skills. Peter is the author of the paperback Noumenautics, and an inspiration behind the new inhuman philosopher Marvel Superhero, Karnak.

    "A good introduction to nihilist philosophy"

    The position feels lacking in its defining of the proposed chief good, power. It is made clear that each method to power is different, so actions are neither good or bad innately, unless perhaps an action always leads to loss of power, but it is unclear what power is. However, albeit the absence of a definition for power, this short book covered a lot of ground and serves as a great introduction and reference point to deeper investigation on nihilist philosophy.

    "This will get you thinking!!"

    Deep and well argued! Short but concise. I'll listen to this a few more times. Narration is good but a little dry, but does the job.

    "Straightforward narration by the author"

    The author provides compelling rationale to why there can be no objective morality and that all morality is in fact a thinly veiled power structure.

    "Old Hat"

    Neo-Nihilism doesn't live up to its titular prefix (and barely lives up to the noun). Prepare yourself for a tediously syllogistic, adolescent journey into...a field of stock Nietzscheanisms.
