Gabriel Marcel and Nietzsche. Existence and Death of God

Paolo Scolari
Published Online: 2018-11-08 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/nietzstu-2018-0018


Gabriel Marcel’s writings stand in a complex relationship to Nietzsche’s thought. Paying homage to Nietzsche’s influence as one of the most eminent representatives of the existential thought, Marcel is aware that he deals with a thinker who is as distant from him as he is very close. Marcel’s references to Nietzsche’s thought are tied to Nietzsche’s expression “God is dead”, and the end of the divine is the theme that simultaneously highlights the greatness and the tragedy of Nietzsche. Marcel accepts the contradictions of Nietzsche’s philosophical thought as both dangerous and fruitful.

Keywords: Gabriel Marcel; Jean-Paul Sartre; Death of God; L’homme devant la mort de Dieu; Nihilism
