Van der Braak begins by analyzing Nietzsche's relationship to Buddhism and status as a transcultural thinker, recalling research on Nietzsche and Zen to date and setting out the basic argument of the study. He continues by examining the practices of self-overcoming in Nietzsche and Zen, comparing Nietzsche's radical skepticism with that of Nagarjuna and comparing Nietzsche's approach to truth to Linji's. Nietzsche's methods of self-overcoming are compared to Dogen's zazen , or sitting meditation practice, and Dogen's notion of forgetting the self. These comparisons and others build van der Braak's case for a criticism of Nietzsche informed by the ideas of Zen Buddhism and a criticism of Zen Buddhism seen through the Western lens of Nietzsche - coalescing into one world philosophy.

The study of nihilism may regard it as merely a label that has been applied to various separate philosophies,  or as a distinct historical concept arising out of nominalism , skepticism , and philosophical pessimism , as well as possibly out of Christianity itself. The term is sometimes used in association with anomie to explain the general mood of despair at a perceived pointlessness of existence or arbitrariness of human principles and social institutions. Nihilism has also been described as conspicuous in or constitutive of certain historical periods. For example,  Jean Baudrillard   and others have characterized postmodernity as a nihilistic epoch  or mode of thought. Nihilism has, however, been widely ascribed to both religious and irreligious viewpoints.

But it proves that not only the letter but also the "spirit" of Nietzsche is important, because his "So Zarathustra said" is imbued with ideas that are very close to Buddhist philosophy, despite the fact that, unlike many other works, explicitly Buddhism does not exist at all never mentioned. True cognition enlightenment or nirvana is the primary purpose for both Buddhists and F.
It examines his idea of the three fields of awareness: consciousness, beneath it nihility, and at bottom emptiness. Existence on the field of consciousness is too superficial to make for a fulfilling life. Drawing from Nietzsche and Heidegger, as well as from the Zen tradition, Nishitani outlines the field of nihility as a place of death rather than life and argues that if we can endure facing our finitude there will come a turn to the deeper field, of emptiness.
