Nihilism and Deliverance

In celebration of the 2015 Southern Gothic Series, Michael Spicher gave a public philosophy talk at The Nickelodeon Theater in Columbia, South Carolina. The event took place before the June 29 screening of a classic 1972 film, Deliverance.

In this 9-minute talk, Michael briefly describes the three stages of nihilism and how they fit into two stories: Deliverance and Flannery O’Connor’s “The River.”
