The Age of Atheists: How We Have Sought to Live Since the Death of God

From certainly one of Britain’s so much unique historians comes the stirring tale of 1 of the fashionable world’s most vital but debatable highbrow achievements: atheism.

Since Friedrich Nietzsche roundly declared that “God is dead” in 1882, a raft of reflective and brave members have committed their artistic energies to devising how you can stay with no Him, turning in its place to invention, enthusiasm, desire, wit and, peculiarly, a variety of sorts of self-reliance. Their courageous, creative tale has long gone untold—until now. within the Age of Atheists, acclaimed historian Peter Watson bargains a sweeping narrative of the secular philosophers and poets, psychologists and scientists, painters and playwrights, novelists or even choreographers who've solid an exhilarating, daring direction within the absence of spiritual belief.

Synthesizing approximately a century and a half fresh heritage, The Age of Atheists is a beautiful, magisterial party of lifestyles with no recourse to the supernatural.

From Paul Valéry and George Santayana to Richard Rorty and Ronald Dworkin, from Georges- Pierre Seurat and Constantin Brâncuşi to Jackson Pollock and Robert Rauschenberg, from André Gide to Philip Roth, from Rudolf Laban to Merce Cunningham, from Henrik Ibsen to Samuel Beckett, from Wallace Stevens and Rainer Maria Rilke to Elizabeth Bishop and Czesław Miłosz, from Sigmund Freud and Benjamin Spock to E. O. Wilson and Sam Harris, The Age of Atheists brilliantly explores how atheism has advanced, deepened and matured, and received extraordinary resonance and recognition because it has sought to switch an unknowable God within the afterlife with the voluptuous element and heat of this existence, to be present in paintings, philosophy and technology, all woven right into a rational, secular morality.

Atheism has had its percentage of ideologues, tyrants and charlatans, however it is primarily a background of courageous accomplishment—and person who is much from finished.

From Nietzsche and his nihilism to Dawkins and Dennett, Nagel and Habermas, Watson’s stimu­lating highbrow narrative explores the innovative rules and massive questions provoked by means of those nice minds and hobbies. A gleaming and finally trium­phant historical past, The Age of Atheists is the 1st complete tale of our efforts to reside with no God.

Daß es "rabbinisiert" worden sei (so Lohmeyer) 93 , ist eine unnötige Vermutung. Wahrscheinlich ist die Mt. )-Fassung (Mt. -Fassung eine Umdeutung im Sinn des Zwei-Wege-Katechismus 94 • Jedenfalls ist die Fassung Mt. 5, 29f. schärfer formuliert. Sie ist rein negativ von der· Gehenna-Angst motiviert. ) erhalten ist, spricht für älteste Tradition. Die Sünde, die durch die Glieder des Leibes hervorgebracht wird, ist nach dem jetzigen Zusammenhang Mt. 5, 27ff. die Sünde des Ehebruchs. Das Logion war aber ursprünglich sicher allgemeiner gemeint; es bezog sich vorwiegend auf die Verführung zu sexuellen Delikten schlechthin.
