The subject of this paper is an investigation of the concept of nothingness in Heidegger and Nishida's philosophies. Heidegger discusses the concept of nothingness in his famous book What Is Metaphysics. He points out that not only nothingness is not from negation, but also it is earlier than the latter. According to Heidegger, nothingness is related to Dasein's existentials. Nothingness comes from anxiety, and then when all entities fall into a whole, it becomes clear. Nishida also addresses the concept of nothingness in his philosophy. According to him, nothingness is a mystical situation. He believes that nothingness is the foundation of everything. Nothingness is a concrete meaning, but it is beyond any other entity. This article compares the main arguments in these two philosophers' perspectives.
