the Latin nihil, nothing, a
term referring to the extreme philosophical view there there is no justification
for values. The term is also used
to speak of the all-out attack on specific values - especially in religion or
morality. A nihilist is presumably
one who promotes the state of believing in nothing whatsoever, or one who holds
that there is nothing in life that is really purposeful or meaningful.
