Speculative ontology, laced with nihilism, this book is a collection of essays pertaining to the emptiness of existence. More
Colorful in every sense of the word, The Nudity of Absence is, above all else, a work of speculative ontology. Drawing on scientific discoveries and metaphysical truths, the essays contained in this book attempt to delineate the contours of the current vacuity, emptiness and senseless negativity of the world we presently live in, while resisting the all too common imperative in most of philosophy that would force us to limit negation. Negativity is, by its very nature, limitless. The ambition of the author at this juncture, is to progressively debunk, so to speak, positive thinking through the exposition of an empirically-grounded negative ontology, a theory of being that contains nothing, for it limits itself to description of things as they are, of the very emptiness of all that is. The essays contained in this book, drawing on a variety of thinkers such as Jean Baudrillard, David Hume, Timothy Morton, Meister Eckhart, as well as Buddhist scripture, are attempts to open the mind to the nihilistic possibilities underlying the world we live in.
