This paper takes a look a the philosopher Nietzsche, and his belief that there is no ultimate meaning to life. Nietzsche's philosophy is that life should be a quest for values, reasons and purpose, filled with passion and governed by individual responsibility.

From the Paper:

"The superman, builded by Nietzsche, is the meaning of the earth, the aim of humanity, the meaning of life itself. In him life reaches its perfection; existence is transfigured. In the coming of the superman, Nietzsche discovers a main goal for life - a great hope. Humanity learns to give itself a purpose. The problems which Nietzsche raises are the concern of every man. They are not academic questions to be debated by philosophers, but touch life at its core. Nietzsche bids men face without quailing the terrifying problem of their own existence. "Nietzsche anticipates the superman who can embrace meaninglessness as the source of power. Power becomes the ultimate meaning in society; the superior power determines what is and is not true.
