Humanism and the Death of God

Searching for the Good After Darwin, Marx, and Nietzsche

Ronald E. Osborn

  • Makes a distinctive contribution to the fields of philosophy and religious studies by synthesizing, clarifying, and critically engaging with the ideas of several seminal figures in the story of secular modernity (and post-modernity)
  • Highlights the internal contradictions, incoherencies, and disastrous moral and political consequences of the naturalist/materialist project through a sustained engagement with classic texts by Darwin, Marx, and Nietzsche, as well as works by some of their contemporary interpreters and admirers
  • Provides an essential resource for readers interested in exploring the moral implications of philosophical naturalism through the lens of these key thinkers in nineteenth-century social and political thought
