Nihilism is defined as the belief that there is no value or truth. Literally, a belief in nothing (Nihil). Moreover, Nihilism refers to the belief that because what is considered true varies from person to person, any search for universal (interpersonal) truth will fail. In other words, there is no one truth, only truths. The Sophists were Nihilists.
