It is generally accepted that life-affirmation is central to Nietzsche’s philosophy.
Nietzsche’s aim is to affirm life despite all miseries for human beings conscious of the
horror and terror of existence and avoid nihilism. He is concerned with life affirmation
almost in all of his works, In my thesis I will consider how he involved with avoiding
nihilism to affirm life according to his two books, The Birth of Tragedy and Genealogy of
Meyboti, Zahra, "Nietzsche and Problem of Nihilism" (2016). Theses and Dissertations. 1389.
