Two views of Nihilism...


Guess which one is me?! :-)

Is it two kinds of nihilism or is it two varieties of temperment...that each is fated via their genome to express?

That is, though both may be nihilists, aren't the "kinds" actually reflective of phenotypes and not an ontological baseline?

Interesting....

One seems to have a 'why bother with anything' attitude...

...while the other exhibits an anticipatory joy of a 'what's going to happen next'.

I wouldn't think that these two attitudes are phenotypes such as they are, it seems to me, much more a function of nurture.
