Nihilism: Belief Crisis of Youth.
Mitchell, John J.
Counseling and Values, v23 n2 p82-89 Feb 1979
The author identifies three distinct variations of youthful nihilism. Transitory nihilism refers to a temporary adolescent condition brought about by intellectual and moral growth. Reflective nihilism refers to the attempt to make nihilism a legitimate philosophy. Psychogenic nihilism refers to a condition of psychic instability brought about by prolonged periods of nonbelief.
