Nihilism as Axiological Illness

Cultura 6 (2):85-100 (2009)

Authors
Abstract
The presentation of nihilism as a phenomenon integrated in the category of illnesses is very common in the scientific literature. This paper is centered on the fact that nihilism is a major disease of the axiological conscience, an illness that can be diagnosed and treated by the philosopher like a ‘physician of culture’.
