Four Atheist Critiques of Christian TheismCourse Cancelled

Denys Alan Turner

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

Atheisms come in kinds, the distinctions between them being based partly on the grounds of the rejection of God, partly on the distinctive form of the theism that is rejected: for theisms come in kinds too. Correspondingly, theisms may be distinguished at least in part by reason of the forms of atheism they confront. There is, therefore, a symbiotic relationship between theisms and atheisms, and they frequently mirror-image one another. Four styles of atheism are considered, represented by Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzsche and Derrida with a view to determining how far a ‘classical’ Christian theism is capable of a response to these critiques.
