'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
