Can we ever be nihilists? What is the difference between talk and action?

Missing Axioms explains how we value, outlining the impossibility of nihilism for human beings.

Through a series of essays covering Socrates, the Tokkōtai (Kamikaze), Christianity, Plato's cave and Sisyphus this book explores the topic of martyrdom and our status as inherently valuing beings.
