Nietzsche and the Experimental Way of Dealing with Nihilism.
My PhD research is part of 'Nietzsche – Experiment and Nihilism’, a research project prompted by the Laura Foundation (Dutch: Stichting Laura) and conducted at Radboud University. The background to this project is the problem of nihilism. According to Nietzsche, our will to truth lies at the heart of this problem. In my research, I investigate how Nietzsche calls the will to truth into question and tries to reshape it by means of an experiment in which living and thinking are no longer separate.
