Religion After the Death of God: A Comparative Study of Mark C. Taylor's and Gianni Vattimo's Philosophies of Religion
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In contemporary continenal philosophy of religion and postmodern theology, the notion of the death of God—a notion often linked to Nietzsche and the death of God theologians of the 1960s—still plays an important role. Despite the amount of intellectual effort that has been put into extricating the possible meanings of this phrase, certain key questions keep coming back to haunt philosophy and theology: How is the death of God to be interpreted? How are we to think about religion after this death in question? This essay investigates some of the key ideas of Mark C. Taylor's and Gianni Vattimo's philosophies of religion, and compares their attempts to think through, and beyond, the death of God, to form new ways of thinking about religion.
