Heidegger and the Death of God : Between Plato and Nietzsche (Hardcover) (Duane Armitage)
About this item
This book presents a reading of Martin Heidegger’s philosophy as an effort to strike a middle position between the philosophies of Plato and Friedrich Nietzsche. Duane Armitage interprets the history of Western philosophy as comprising a struggle over the meaning of “being,” and argues that this struggle is ultimately between materialism and idealism, and, in the end, between atheism and theism. This work therefore concerns the question of the meaning of the so called “death of God” in the context of contemporary Continental Philosophy.
