This volume aims to inspire a return to the energetics of Nietzsche's prose and the critical intensity of his approach to nihilism and to give back to the future its rightful futurity. For too long contemporary thought has been dominated by a depressed 'what is to be done?'. All is regarded to be in vain, nothing is deemed real, there is nothing new seen under the sun. Such a 'postmodern' lament is easily confounded with an apathetic reluctance to think engagedly. Hence our contributors draw on the variety of topical issues: the future of life, the nature of life-forms, the techno-sciences, the body, religion...as a way of tackling the question of nihilism's pertinence to us now.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Nihilism Now! Monsters of Energy provides the perfect opportunity for us to reflect on, to refresh and dynamize the forces of nihilism that Nietzsche both admonished and admired, those nihilistic forces that mark modernity and its postmodern consequences. This book addresses the question of how to live productively, and without disavowal, in the face of a cultural and epistemic nihilism that both threatens all joy in and of the future and yet acts as a counterforce to the self-satisfactions of the past and present. It asks us to revel in an active nihilism that overcomes the passivity of social, political and moral nihilism that pervades much of contemporary culture.' - Professor Elizabeth Grosz, SUNY at Albany
