From nihilism to monism

Australasian Journal of Philosophy 85 (2):175 – 191 (2007)
Abstract
Mereological nihilism is the view that all concrete objects are simple. Existence monism is the view that the only concrete object is one big simple: the world. I will argue that nihilism culminates in monism. The nihilist demands the simplest sufficient ontology, and the monist delivers it.
