What is the School of Nihilism?

The School of Nihilism is a means of explaining important ideas and concepts within Nihilism using books, films, and so on, in an interactive question and answer form. The Modules are designed to be printed so that you can write your answers and notes on the paper, and collect each module together in a notebook. Or you can type your answers into your computer.
