The Nihilism and Philosophy of Technology

March 28, 2022
Nolen Gertz


This week our guest is Nolen Gertz, who is an Assistant Professor of Applied Philosophy at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, and the author of several books including “Nihilism and Technology.”

In this episode we really focus on the philosophical side of technology, exploring related concepts of hedonism, the need for struggle, apathy for the world’s challenges, and much more. Ultimately, Nolen proposes that technology is allowing us to stay comfortable and nihilistic while the world burns around us and that we need to embrace responsibility in order to restore a balance to our lives.
