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

From certainly one of Britain’s such a lot unusual historians comes the stirring tale of 1 of the fashionable world’s most crucial but arguable highbrow achievements: atheism.

Since Friedrich Nietzsche roundly declared that “God is dead” in 1882, a raft of reflective and brave members have dedicated their artistic energies to devising how you can reside with no Him, turning as an alternative to invention, enthusiasm, desire, wit and, particularly, quite a few sorts of self-reliance. Their courageous, ingenious 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 exciting, daring course within the absence of non secular belief.

Synthesizing approximately a century and a half contemporary heritage, The Age of Atheists is a beautiful, magisterial get together 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 won remarkable resonance and recognition because it has sought to interchange an unknowable God within the afterlife with the voluptuous aspect 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 proportion of ideologues, tyrants and charlatans, however it is exceptionally a heritage of courageous accomplishment—and one who is way from finished.

From Nietzsche and his nihilism to Dawkins and Dennett, Nagel and Habermas, Watson’s stimu­lating highbrow narrative explores the progressive principles and large questions provoked via those nice minds and activities. A glowing and eventually trium­phant historical past, The Age of Atheists is the 1st complete tale of our efforts to dwell with out God.

Sample text

Wir sehen: Jesus meint mit dem reinen Herzen keine unsoziale oder gar welt ab gewandte Frömmigkeit, sondern das genaue Gegenteil. Herz meint auch für uns etwas Zentrales - sowohl im konkreten wie im symbolischen Sinne. Herz ist Zentrum, Motor unseres Körpers und ein Ausdruck dafür, daß uns etwas sehr wichtig ist. Herz steht dafür, was wir wirklich sind, steht dafür, worauf wir aus sind, wie wir es mit unserer Umwelt meinen, ob gut oder böse. «Aus dem Herzen kommen böse Gedanken, Mord, Ehebruch, Unzucht, Diebstahl, falsches Zeugnis, Lästerung.

Oder ist das nicht nur realisierbar, sondern auch unbedingt sinnvoll und Bedingung für unser aller Leben und Überleben? Was aber ist realistisch? In einem Lied heißt es: Die Menschen hier auf Erden, die wollten Brüder werden, doch nein, doch nein, doch nein. Sie waren arme Tröpfe und schlugen sich die Köpfe mit Quadersteinen ein, mit Quadersteinen ein. Wir erkennen unseren Wunsch, einander Bruder und Schwester zu werden, aber unser faktisches Verhalten widerspricht dem. Doch gegen wen spricht das - gegen die Wahrheit der Bergpredigt oder gegen unser (mormales» Verhalten?

Das reine Herz ... Wir haben Schwierigkeiten damit. Wo gibt es das sonst, wenn schon nicht bei Kindern? Wir kennen vielleicht die Zeilen eines Bertolt Brecht aus seinem Gedicht «An die Neugeborenen»: Wirklich, ich lebe in frnsteren Zeiten! Was sind das für Zeiten, wo Ein Gespräch über Bäume fast ein Verbrechen ist. Weil es ein Schweigen über so viele Untaten einschließt! Der dort ruhig über die Straße geht Ist wohl nicht mehr erreichbar für seine Freunde Die in Not sind? Dabei wissen wir doch: Auch der Haß gegen die Niedrigkeit 55 Verzerrt die Züge.
