Difficult Atheism: Post-T. has been added to your Cart. My interest in Nancy drew me to this book. Nancy explains more clearly than most why the old dichotomy of theism/atheism no longer works

Difficult Atheism: Post-T. Alain Badiou and Jean-Luc Nancy are contemporary French philosophers, widely recognized, especially in the context of Continental philosophy. In this volume, they are compared and contrasted on the topic of atheism. Nancy explains more clearly than most why the old dichotomy of theism/atheism no longer works. Yet he retains some of the traditional vocabulary and his re-interpretation of that interrupts any hope for easy reading.

Christopher Watkin takes readers on a fascinating journey into contemporary post-theological philosophy. He shows with admirable clarity how each writer articulates a new position beyond the innate problems of parasitism and asceticism, and he sharpens focus on post-theological integration, whether in the form of Badiou's axiomatic atheism, Nancy's deconstructive antheology, or Meillassoux's argument that philosophy believes in God because God does not exist. As Watkin proves quite brilliantly, atheism is not as easy as it seems.

By Christopher Watkin. Drawing primarily on the work of Alain Badiou and Jean-Luc Nancy, plus Quentin Meillassoux and Slavoj Zizek, Watkin explores the theme of atheism through the ideas of the death of God and nihilism and probes the limits of any "atheistic politics. Difficult Atheism argues that rigorous atheism is elusive and that Continental thought, even in its most stridently atheistic guises, has yet to fully come to terms with the death of God.

In this book, Meillassoux argues that post-Kantian philosophy is dominated by what he.

In this book, Meillassoux argues that post-Kantian philosophy is dominated by what he calls "correlationism," the often unstated theory that humans cannot exist without the world nor the world without humans. In Meillassoux's view, this is a dishonest maneuver that allows philosophy to sidestep the problem of how to describe the world as it really is prior to all human.

In this admirable book Christopher Watkins presents the latest turn in that debate-the one about God, not punk rock-to the reader through an analysis of the work of Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Quentin Meillassoux. Watkin frames his book around three possible reactions to the death of God. The first he calls imitative atheisms wherein some other concept-e.

Christopher Watkin argues that Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy and Quentin Meillassoux each elaborate a distinctive approach to the post-theological, but that each approach still struggles to do justice to the death of God. eISBN: 978-0-7486-4630-2. Subjects: Philosophy. There is a new move in French philosophy today to come to terms with the death of God more rigorously than ever, and it cannot be understood under the banner of ‘atheism’. No longer can we think in terms of a monolytic atheism or of a single agenda of thinking ‘without God’, for what we see developing is a plurality of perhaps incommensurable approaches to thinking after God.

Being an "atheist" is not a simple matter. Watkin takes up Alain Badiou ("axiomatic atheism"), Jean-Luc Nancy ("atheology") and Quentin Meillassoux ("divine inexistence"), each of whom he thinks has just such a post-theological project in mind.

Reassesses the term 'atheism' in the context of contemporary French philosophy. Drawing primarily on the work of Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy and Quentin Meillassoux, Watkin explores post-theological reassessments of atheism through the ideas of the death of God and nihilism in contemporary French philosophy, and probes the limits of any 'atheistic politics'. He argues that rigorous atheism is elusive, and that Continental thought, even in its most stridently atheistic guises, has yet fully come to terms with the death of God.
