Description 

In 1882, Friedrich Nietzsche famously declared, "God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him." In the 1940s and 1950s, Albert Camus explored the possibility of a world without God though the lens of absurdity and rebellion. In the 1960s, Thomas J. J. Altizer gained nation-wide notoriety by developing a "death of God theology." What did Nietzsche mean, and how did Camus and Altizer respond? Students will: (1) understand the basic outline of Nietzsche's philosophy of religion; (2) understand how that philosophy has been applied in two very different ways and (3) have an opportunity to discuss themes in existential philosophy and theology
