Navigating Past Nihilism

This is a little off the normal track of articles I post. It's about the concept of nihilism and how we find ourself in it today. It's not written for an academic audience so its somewhat simplistic but an easy read.
 It was written by Sean D. Kelly, chair of the department of philosophy at Harvard University.  He is the co-author, with Hubert Dreyfus, of “All Things Shining:  Reading the Western Classics to Find Meaning in a Secular Age,”
