Nietzsche continues to be what he desired to be - the limit-philosopher of a modernity that by no means ends. This booklet argues that purely to reject Nietzsche isn't really to flee his trap.

Seeking to complete the process, and so bring nihilism to an end, Nietzsche describes an ecology in which the nonsense of the world is as it is forever. The argument of this book is that Nietzsche’s solution, far from being the completion of nihilism, is merely an attempt to arrest it. By excluding any future exchange of nonsense for sense, he also excludes any further exchange of sense for nonsense. Yet if, as Nietzsche himself asserts, such exchanges are ultimately just changes in the population of the world, his particular ecology can always be undermined by one that is more negative still.
