Life/Human/Nihilism/Nietzsche/Danto: As soon as Nietzsche's nihilism - according to which there is no objective order or structure existing before our formation - is accepted, one will no longer be tempted, as he believed, to disparage human life by contrasting it with eternal, immutable or good things in themselves. .... According to Nietzsche, the real task is to make humanity more than it has been.
