Course Description: Friedrich Nietzsche's phrase "The death of God" has become synonymous with Europe's long passage from a medieval consensus that agreed that God is in all things to a modernity which posits nature and human beings as independent entities at the centre of life's processes. Consequently, "The Death of God" describes the secularisation of religious life and its continuing quarrel with modernity. The course addresses philosophical and political secularization and their relation with religion, examining major arguments that dispute religious doctrine. Assessment: coursework (70%), and final exam (30%).
