In Nihilism and Technology, Nolen Gertz aims to circumvent the binary discussions that characterise contemporary popular discourses surrounding technology, instead exploring the philosophy of nihilism in order to reflect upon the relationship between our values and the ways we use and design technologies. This is a lively and convincing read, finds Jon Greenaway, that will leave readers far better equipped to understand and resist the numbing techno-nihilism of contemporary late capitalism.
