  1. Nietzsche and the Premodernist Critique of Postmodernity.Michael Allen Gillespie - 1997 - Critical Review: A Journal of Politics and Society 11 (4):537-554.
    The crisis of modern reason culminates in Nietzsche's proclamation of nihilism.

Does his teaching not topple of its own weight/lessness? It is the standard objection to which all postmodern philosophers must respond.
