Eine metaphysische Geschichte des Atheismus

Vittorio Hösle
Published Online: 2009-09-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1524/dzph.2009.0027

Abstract

The essay explores Charles Taylor′s “A Secular Age” and focuses on following shortcomings of the work: Is the separation of the sacred and the profane a loss or an intensivation of religiosity? Does the Kantian universalist ethics not represent an increased commitment to basic Christian ideas? Must not even atheism be interpreted as a step in the self-unfolding of the divine? Taylor′s remarkable work is interpreted as being too strongly committed to Catholic personalism and not sufficiently familiar with the Protestant theological tradition.

Keywords: atheism′s religious importance; modernity; secularization
