Springkling Some Grains of Theism with Nietzsche’s Atheistic Dictum: “God is Dead”

Menelito P. Mansueto

Discipline: Philosophy, Theology, Anthropology



That “God is dead” is the first thing that would recall to mind the moment one invokes or mentions the name of Nietzsche, as if that’s the only thing people knew of him, that his name has become almost synonymous with atheism. The author defends Nietzsche by arguing that although he is against Christianity, Nietzsche is not totally against God, and a life-giving God is reconcilable into Nietzsche’s thought.
